Lotus Firefly Concept

The Lotus Firefly is a light vehicle focussed on extreme leisure activities. Its identity lies somewhere between high-tech development and the roughness of nature.

The concept’s inspiration stems from Alina Alexandra Ciobanu’s childhood dreams, where she would run and, after a few steps, have her body lift up off the ground and float into the air. Though most of the leisure activities we cultivate today have deep roots in our history and are confined to land, Ciobanu’s dream is to add wings.

“What if you were stuck somewhere in the middle way between dream and reality?” Ciobanu asks rhetorically. “What if this vehicle would be at first available to you in a virtual platform, so that you could train to fly it? And when you would master the art of flying it, you could try the real experience.”
