Supercar design contest's final three announcedMon, 16 Dec 2013 00:00:00 -0800
Dutch supercar maker Vencer has announced the top three entries in its design contest, which challenged the global design community to submit ideas for its second model.
The competition, launched in May last year, saw around 90,000 voters judging over 350 designs on its website. From these, the three with the most ‘likes' were chosen.
‘Stevie' from Finland topped the leaderboard with his design called the Vencer Nopeasti, while the US's ‘CLDesigns' made it into the final three for its Vencer Vainqueur. ‘Greg' from Australia's Vencer Galena took the final spot.
All three entries will now be judged on their originality, technical feasibility as well as compliance with prevailing regulations before the definitive winners are announced in mid-January.
Those not entering designs were able to take part by posting comments and suggestions as well as voting for their favorite design.
Just like Local Motors, this contest was launched to use the creativity of the global design community while providing a platform for design talent to be recognized.
