This is the Qing Yi concept car, on permanent exhibit at the Tron ride attraction at Shanghai Disneyland. Daniel designed this vehicle with creative approval of Ed Welburn, General Motors’ Vice President of Global Design at the time.
In 2013, three years after the release of Tron Legacy, producers of the Tron attraction for Shanghai Disneyland Park’s Tomorrowland invited Daniel to return to the grid. The brief was to create a full size vehicle unique enough to capture the imagination of visitors after they exit the exhilarating ‘Tron Lightcycle Power Run’. The post-show exhibit is sponsored by General Motors’ Chevrolet division, therefore Daniel worked closely with creatives of Disney, GM China, and GM Global Design, to distill the perfect essence of Chevrolet and Tron into one machine.
