1977. The mega-passenger aircraft is based on the shape of the Megalodon shark. Colani presented his own mega-version of a passenger aircraft seven years after the 747 first went into service. It has four flight decks, swing-wings at the rear and two fivefold drives. Each flight deck can seat up to 1,000 passengers. At the invitation of Tom Riedinger, Colani presented his model and the simulations he had produced himself in Seattle.

Colani exhibition in Karlsruhe, southern Germany
In front: 1983. Flying object for the road. With his prototype for Mazda, Colani took the principle of wing cars to the extreme. The plan was, at a later stage, to use a
4-chamber Mazda Wankel rotary engine, capable of between 960 and 1400 hp for the Le Mans vehicle, which was only available as a life-size model,. The wing shape was meant to enable this veritable powerhouse to accelerate to speeds of 350-380 km/h.

1989. Rollout of the futurist concept study for the high-speed Utah 8 two-wheeler in Berne, Switzerland. This motorcycle was specially created for an attempt at the world land record held by Utah legend Don Vesco (518 km/h). Colani intended to then go for the absolute world record of 659 km/h for wheel-based vehicles - held by Bob Summer driving his "Goldenrod" and dating from 1965. The high-speed vehicles amount to the climax of his ingenious focus on this type of formal solution.

1997/2002. Truck based on a DAF chassis, and Spitzer silo truck on a Mercedes Actros chassis. Just why the automobile industry never adopted Colani's ideas, which he has propagated for 30 years, and never put the series into mass production will remain one of life's great mysteries.

Those trucks really were built and drive along here in Germany! Saw one which is used by a beer-company for shows. It is just hideous, but also rare to see one

I can't say it's hideous, becuase it's just too original for me to demean it to that.
