One off 70’s racer

From Core 77: What comes after Modular Car and Soap Box Racer? Guess they never asked you this back in school but Marijn van der Poll has got the answer: the ‘CM426 merlin‘ (click DRIVE) The car is inspired by the Canadian American Challenge Cup racers of the early seventies. Half car, half sculpture, the CM426 merlin brings together high-tech laser cutting and old fashioned craftsmanship. According to Marijn, “It’s hard to compare the design and building of a car to my other design work”, which is exactly why we love his work! We spotted Marijn’s monster car and more niche vehicles making their debut at the Dutch Design Week galleries
