Studebaker Astral


Project info

The Studebaker Astral was created in 1957. It was perhaps the craziest car concept, designed to be powered by atomic energy. This nuclear powered car never saw the light of day.
The car was balanced on one wheel using gyroscope technology and it was said to hover over water.
I did not find any images of the Astral with this wheel. I was inspired by the cover of Hobby magazine (August 1958) showing it in flight.
