Video Featuring Student Designed IED McLaren Crossovers

Turin's Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) has recently teamed up with McLaren to come up with designs for what a possible McLaren crossover would look like in the year 2020.

Called the Holon, Torok, and Bio Renovatio, each one was made into a 1:4 scale model. While they have polarizing designs, they are nonetheless a preview as to what may be in store for future high-performance crossovers.
