Designer: Daniel Simon

Daniel Simon is a concept designer, author and producer, with professional roots as Senior Designer at Bugatti and Volkswagen. Clients include Warner Brothers, Universal, Disney, Lotus, Puma or DKNY. Simon focuses his acclaimed style on Hollywood blockbuster films like Captain America, Tron Legacy and own intellectual properties. After living in Spain, England, Brazil and Japan, Simon settled in the creative environment of Los Angeles, California. In parallel to offer services to clients world-wide, he works on his own label, Cosmic Motors.

After designs the movie Captain America, Simon is hired to design the villain’s vehicles in sequel too. Simon has just re-rendered one of new designs – the almost psychedelically cool Schmidt Hydra V16 Coupe – in a beautiful HD quality short film, which you can watch at

The result is an combination of Auto Union Type C and Avus stream-liner, Mercedes 540K, pre-war Bentleys, and the half-track Mercedes G4 staff car favoured by Hitler and his generals in the Wehrmacht. This car is also a teaser for Simon’s next project, due to be unveiled in May 2013. ‘It’s my own futuristic automotive franchise,’ he says mysteriously. ‘There’ll be a book first, and it features all my usual obsessions – speed, racing, heroism…’
