    Sabino Design B3 - What American kit-car designers SHOULD be thinking

    Sabino is a relative newcomer to the automotive design world, but the Netherlands based company has already developed its first major showpiece that it hopes will gather public interest, and more importantly investment dollars. Labelled the B3, the aggressive looking coupe is a mix of both European and American design, and was created to both modern and retro in one.

    There are obvious elements of the classic Corvette shape in the profile. However, the long bonnet is reminiscent of the Dodge Viper, while the rear angle screams TVR. Unique to the B3 is the dark glazed surface, circular shaped windscreen and projector LED headlights. The rear bumper is finished with the addition of dual chrome exhaust pipes and an Aston Martin style rear.

    It appears as if the Dutch designers tried to amalgamate the best parts from a handful of classic cars to make what they believed would be a beautiful coupe, but when combined the lines just donít seem to flow.
    This car really is lightyears ahead of American kit-car designs yet retains familiar body lines long accepted and loved in the sportscar world.

    Unfortunately I can't design such ugly car... Don't let some shiny Photoshop-ed renderings to cheat your imagination If you see this car in white paint you will throw up

    Bobi,
    For once I have to disagree with you. I have been following this guy's work for almost 3 years. His name is Sabino Leerentveld and he has made some serious contributuions to concept cars! By the way he is just a kid (24) and packed with incredible talent. He is actually a tutor for rhino on the nurph 3d system...Make a google search for him under Sabaman or better still, just click and see for yourself:

    http://sabaman.deviantart.com/

    You will be very impressed. I have to agree that your work is very good Bobi, but I too have to give this kid his credit. As they say, there is always room for good designers and good contributions. Keep up the good work.
    Kindest Regards,
    Chamaco

    Yeah, probably you can't see my work because you can't click here since few months...
    http://www.kitcentral.com/pn/html/mo...view_album.php

    And this is only a small part of my past work because I don't want to unveil my own designs until I make them into real cars in the next few years.



    Chamaco, it's a different car!!!
    As for Sabaman's designs - I'm not impressed. He use too many details from existing cars. I prefer to invent totaly new original shapes instead of use real cars as inspiration and modify their design elements. Since he have mediate Rhino NURBS abbilities and very bad engineering ones (wrong areas around the tyres - they can't turn enough because they will hit the body; wrong shape of the body - the windows can't go down; wrong spoiler mounting rods etc...), I have to agree that his Photosop-ed renderings are state of the art.

    I like the bike and the helicopter + his new yelow car which use the rear of his old 1-seater car with modified front end (which looks better than 2005 Tramontana).

    And when you going to make general appraise of some 3d design, first try to look at the main shape and the design elements instead of the shiny renderings. Using good 3d effects you can make some old VW to look better than Enzo or Murcielago... ;D
