Cosmic Motors: Daniel Simon’s Galactic Art & Design

I love sci-fi, futurism, and automotive shizz; that’s why I think Daniel Simon is so bloody super-fantastic. He’s the man behind Cosmic Motors.

Cosmic Motors, according the History of Cosmic Motors on their website, is an independent manufacturer of vehicles of all kinds, located in the center of the Galaxion galaxy. CoMo, as it is affectionately referred to by it’s fans, was founded by the famous Redooa brothers in the Galaxion year 8966-B.

If you’re going to do something like this, you have to commit to it. That’s what makes it so damn awesome, not only does Daniel Simon have beautifully detailed vehicles, but he has backstories for each one and a detailed history of the company.

The Redooa Brothers, Founders of Cosmic Motors

Daniel Simon is a German automotive futurist. In 2001 he obtained his degree in vehicle design at the University of Applied Science in Pforzheim, Germany. After completion he went to Barcelona and designed concept cars for Bugatti and Lamborghini, followed by 5 years in the VW Group’s Advanced Design, where he supervised a show car. He has since returned to Berlin and founded the Daniel Simon Studio where he designs virtual vehicles for Cosmic Motors. He’s actually published a book about the company: Cosmic Motors: Spaceships, Cars and Pilots of Another Galaxy

There’s even some Scifaiku (Science Fiction Haiku) written by Fritz Redooa.

But here’s the best part, first a video, then the machines:

The Galaxion 5000 coupe, the most technologically advanced vehicle in the CoMo lineup. A xenoramium fusion reactor provides blinding acceleration to 330 mph. Available only in translucent white, unauthorized “Black Edition” models with mile-deep black paint and extensive weaponry have surfaced in the underworld of Tarra 1.

The Gravion was specifically built to dominate the Gravion Cup races of Glancory. The asymmetrical design accommodates the massive engine used in the Sexy Magrela aerial racers, creating a vehicle capable of 1,300 mph. Taking turns at that speed generates huge G-forces, so the off-center cockpit rotates to keep the driver from snapping his neck. Heated coils in the rear tires keep the rubber hot for optimal adhesion.

Patrolling the trade routes of the ice planet Nala is nasty work best done in an Ice Train Series 3. These huge vehicles — the entry door is 24 feet above the ground — feature giant heated wheels that cut through the ice and snow to solid ground. Much of the space inside the vehicle is reserved for the massive turbine engines, leaving just enough room for the captain, the navigator and a crew of 12 dwarfs.

Of all the planets of Galaxion, only Mujofa remains wracked by war. Taooa are powerful laser gunships that feature two 505-mm light rays capable of destroying anything that might give it trouble. The warships often sport nosecone art similar to those that graced warplanes on a distant planet called Earth.

The Camarudo is CoMo’s first vehicle, built from parts salvaged from wrecked cargo ships. Its small size and nimble handling made it the perfect vehicle for hunting, and CoMo adapted them to racing. Many famous pilots started their careers flying them on Oosfera.

The Camarudo 2, shot from above. The first Camarudos were assembled by farmers, a heritage reflected in its simple design. A turbine provides thrust, and forward visibility is by means of a virtual 3-D display, rendering a windscreen unnecessary. Despite its humble beginnings, Camarudos often are customized to reflect the personalities of its pilots.
