Say hello to the world’s only driverless racing car, coming to Goodwood for the first time (alas as a static display only!) as part of special exhibition into the future of mobility. FOS Future Lab, is the new FOS attraction where you can see how we will be getting from A to B in the not-too-distant future.
Flying cars, supersonic travel and even a space walk are all being previewed in FOS Future Lab, along with that 200mph driverless racecar…
The car for the ultimate Scalextric race is the work of automotive futurist Daniel Simon. You may not know the name but the odds are you will know his work. He’s the former VW group designer with a passion for the weird and wonderful whose fantasy cars have become a hit in Hollywood blockbusters such as Tron: Legacy, Oblivion and Captain America.
Who better then to pen the first driverless electric car? Without that pesky thing called a cockpit Daniel has certainly made “RoboCar” look purposeful. And there is indeed a serious purpose behind it, the aim being a whole grid-full of them do battle in support races during the all-electric Formula E championship.
