Clemson Students Concept Car Revealed


A next-generation Mazda concept vehicle, conceived and engineered by Clemson University automotive engineering students at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CUICAR), was unveiled at the Center for Automotive Research Management Briefing Seminars in Traverse City, Mich.

The Deep Orange 3, with body panels designed by student Frederick Naaman at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif., was unveiled Monday.

Derek Jenkins, design director for Mazda North American Operations, said in a Clemson press release that being part of a college program of this caliber that focuses not just on one aspect of a vehicle, but the vehicle as a whole, is an automaker’s dream come true.

“These students have provided fresh and inventive ideas from sketch pad to sheet metal, and the final product truly speaks to that open dialogue and collaboration between the Art Center College of Design and Clemson University,” Jenkins said.
