Local Motors 'Active Lifestyle Vehicle Challenge' is getting good [w/video]
On Saturday, three winners were picked: 1) CLIMAX by John Bukasa; 2) Hero by Lucian Nicolae Acatrinei; 3) Workshop by Xavier Gordillo. (The winners, in order, are the first three pictures in the photo gallery.) The winner gets $1,500 in prize money, second place receives $1,000 and third place gets $500.
There wasn't much to guide designers, except for a set of general requirements. The vehicles had to feature the following: ability to load one road bike inside; easy-to-clean interior; night lighting system, especially around the cargo areas; cargo area for gear; ability to do light off-roading; and the ability to camp in.
We're not sure every vehicle on the submission list met all of these requirements, but some of them were impressive - and/or impressively named ("Audi Uphill," "Catch-a-Boat," and "Haikir," were a few standouts). Take a look at them in the photo gallery, and watch the introduction and awards videos below.
