Packard - Designer: Fernando Gomez, age 48, Uruguay
As the name of his concept car implies, Gomez took inspiration from classic Packards, which were built from 1899 through 1958. Rather than a traditional V12, like in old Packards, Gomez envisions a 12-cylinder with three banks of four cylinders. Aluminum hoops around the wheels create the look of old whitewall tires.
