The year is 2025 and we have race cars that set tracks ablaze with their ferocious looks alone. . MMR25 comes with a description that’s beyond reality, just like its renderings. A look from the rear and MMR25 Mitsubishi is a bad-ass robotic insect of some sorts. It is an omni-directional vehicle that can move along any axis. This power train has four in-wheel electric motors, and eight supplemental motors in each wheel. Each wheel has eight motors within, making movement possible in any which way.

A great application of this technology are the AIRTRAX vehicles. You can see them in action here.
