Next-gen engineers build car from scratch
Magical. That's how one enthusiastic student describes driving the concept car he and his classmates at Clemson University built for Mazda. The students were tasked with engineering a sporty, high-mileage vehicle with plenty of cargo space for young buyers. As a result, the young men and women took an unconventional approach in developing the hybrid, which features a rare manual transmission. As you'll hear, the engineering team and its designer expect to see the car – or at least some components of it – on the road someday.
