No, we’re not sure why someone would spend what had to have been years of their lives welding, bending, and manipulating seemingly miles of steel tubing like this but we’re damned glad that they did. This monster is sitting outside of the main hall at the 2015 SEMA show and there are really no words to describe it and there’s really nothing else to compare it to, that we’ve ever seen anyway. The best we can do is mention that it is kind of like an Ariel Atom running head on into Mad Max and emerging as this.
Powered by a 302i Ford Coyote DOHC V8 engine and capable of seating five people, it is sculpture as much as it is function. We’re sure that it runs, drives, and steers as their is evidence of all that stuff happening when you look at it. What’s really funny about the monster is that when you look at it from afar you appreciate the odd shape and the weird lines, and you know that it is something that doesn’t really jive with anything that you have seen before but when you see it up close, when you take the time to look at it, that’s when your mind really blows up. The amount of welding here, the amount of art being exhibited here, and the amount of time spent to create it all boggles the mind.
We’re going to try and dig up more dirt on this creation but until we do, check out the photos below. We’re calling the the Mad Max Ariel Atom, can you do better?
