    I'm puzzled here... If I'm not wrong Italy hasn't produced any military transportation vehicles since the WWII except for armoured vehicles. I believe they are using foreign military vehicles.
    So is the concept supposed to be based on some of their domestic armoured vehicles or some of the foreign transportation vehicles in their service?

    The HUMVEE was adopted by JEEP to create the HUMMER, the HUMVEE was created in 1983, yet is still being produced in various models in 2005.

    So find something the italian army used, or is still using(not very much im sure), and adapt it into a product by one of the listed Italian car companies.

    try to remember that an italian car designer will be the one manufactoring them, so review their car designs to review what their principles of design are.

    Centauro-CIV

    Here's a quick one, as that I will not have time later in the week to devote to this:

    IDW002 Civilian model based on military vehicle.

    2.5 hrs, 2H Pencil and 0.5 Mechanical HB Pencil, on 7x11'' 65lb paper.

    Description:

    The Centauro-CIV is the civilian heavy-industry redesign of the Centauro Infantry Fighting Vehicle. The original vehicle was jointly designed and produced by the Iveco, Fiat - Oto Melara production group. When redesigned for civilian applications, Fiat handled both production and redesign.

    While the vehicle is somewhat unchanged in basic appearance, it is much lighter, as that all armor has been removed, and many military systems (Fire Control computer, NBC Scrubber, etc.) have been removed. The powerplant and drivetrain are largely unchanged, but minor tweaks to the engine were done for fuel economy and to meet emission standards.

    The focus of the redesign was to play to the Centauro's strengths as a durable, large, powerful platform. The Centauro-CIV vehicle is setup for the easy design and fitting of a wide range of "Industry Tool" pods, ranging from simple platforms and containers for using the Centauro in shipping, to more advanced cranes, earth-shovels, and fire-fighting setups. The base vehicle also comes in varying numbers of wheels, and is avalible with rising axles for reducing rolling resistance when you don't need all 8 wheels on the ground. This versatility is what makes the Centauro-CIV so unique in the industry machinery sector.

    The Centauro-CIV may not be pretty, but it is durable, powerful, and capable of anything you equip it for.

    I now its not allowed to post a WIP, but i think this will inspire people.
    Its a 21st century version of the Puma 4x4. It has 4WD but the engine
    is in the rear ( i dont know if that is technically possible). It has 6 seats
    standard, only 1 delorean-like door, the front window can open to
    access the trunk and it has a spoiler. So far I am just trying to find the
    right design. I have only 1 question: Does the design have to be
    technically right?

    here it is: http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d4...74/Puma4x4.jpg

    UPDATE!!!
    Instead of a 4x4 I am going to make a 6x6 now. Its a "bentley" amongst the SUV range. Its is a very big, luxurious and fast car which has 6 seats. It still needs some sketching before I get the best design. My next post will be the final design either in B/W or in color.

    Been swamped at work, so I haven't had a ton of time to work on this, but here's my concept based on the Dardo Infantry Fighting Vehicle.
