future race car with spherical wheels

i am testing new render engines and using a old model of mine. its an concept of future former one car. it has sphere as tires, this makes it possible to move more nimble and efficient.

goodyear showing a similar concept this year. Goodyear calls it the Eagle-360, and admits that it’s technology for the future, though functional now.
