Halcyon Concept Car


Designer Ralph Tayler-Webb?s inspiration for the Halcyon concept came from his love for nature and the desire for tranquil roads, as are seen in most luxury car advertisements. Inspired by the Owl, the Haylcon is clean, efficient, ultra-lightweight and eerily silent. The concept utilizes electric power for clean and silent motion, while its aerodynamic structure with covered wheels and a tapering teardrop cabin reduces air drag to a minimum.

With a structure made from porous aluminum foam, the Halcyon mimics the owl?s hollow bones and makes it surprisingly light for its generous volume. Aluminum foam also benefits from high impact and acoustic absorbency, keeping the occupants safe and (without) sound. As part of the concept?s research and development, Ralph photographed and studied birds in flight, carving an owl in hardwood and sketching them in charcoal and with watercolors. The final model was created entirely out of hand in clay and then cast in resin to maintain what Ralph believes is an ?organic form with something instinctive, quite intangible, but very special,? and we completely agree with that.
