With BMW popularizing a new form of slant-backed crossover and the likes of Lamborghini and Maserati working on crossovers of their own, the line between the sports car and the SUV is getting blurrier all the time. But this... this is something else. It's called the Sidewinder, and it's the work of one of our favorite independent daydreamers – Eduard Gray of Gray Design. It looks something like a Local Motors Rallyfighter or McRae Enduro, only, well, more so.
Swedish designer Eduard Gray, who you've heard of via the Dartz Jo-Mojo and Pombron Nagel concepts and delightful Saab 92010 Sixten concept, is back at the drawing board penning boats and matching supercars. Following the Strand Craft 122, the Xhibitionist is a 75-meter superyacht with unmissable automotive cues, and it is said to be the inspiration for the Xhibit-G supercar.
Think of the name Dartz and, if you're up on your whale foreskin-upholstered SUVs, you'll invariably arrive at the Prombron. But while glad to furnish Eastern European mobsters with the machine that makes the Hummer look like a beauty queen, Dartz is keen to break out of the Prombron's mold with sleeker offerings. That's what led to the design of the chopped-down Nagel sedan and, more recently, to the Mojo roadster. Now Dartz has followed up with another design it calls the Jo-MoJo.
