Cosmic Motors Galaxion 5000
Graphic artist, writer and futurist Daniel Simon is the current darling of both Hollywood movie studios and the top levels of the video gaming industry. Where this man’s wild brain goes, billions in potential commercial opportunities seem to follow. His most groundbreaking work for car enthusiasts came with the founding of Cosmic Motors some years ago. Future cars from Cosmic Motors are often capable of flight, hypersonic speeds and include unimaginably advanced racing and weapons technology. Away from the brutality of the interstellar race circuit, Cosmic Motors also produces a line of super-luxury coupes called the Galaxion. The Galaxion 3000 and 5000 personal luxury coupes present a luxurious way to warp to the 330 mph top speed inside a plush two-seat cockpit. A fusion cell provides the energy for unlimited lifetime use.
Powered by a compact and shatter-proof Xenoramium fusion reactor fuel cell, the Galaxion offers performance enough to mean Cosmic Motors drivers are first in the asteroid field or toll booth drag races. The 3000’s estimated sprint time of 1.82 seconds drops down to just 0.81 seconds (projected) for the forthcoming Galaxion 5000 Black Edition.
Bringing a 20-percent power boost to CM 1180 (about 2,360 horsepower), the top speed for this menacing performance model is close to 400 mph (on land).
Daniel Simon’s charming and provocative future vision is addictive in its attention to detail and stunning design at every turn.
To learn more about the Galaxion and dozens of other models in the CoMo range, Mr. Simon’s gorgeous book available now at book stores everywhere.

This is the fourth Gift Horse Mouth Studios project, a line of free sim racing cars, each with a timeless story. Hidden but picked up and brought alive in Asseto Corsa, so that motion can breath life into a valuable dream. We felt the book Cosmic Motors is not just a book of pages with ink, but a key to another place, a real place called Galaxion. It exists, it must be a real place.
The strong feeling of longing towards Galaxion I feel has some form of connection to the poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge..
“What if you slept
And what if
In your sleep
And what if
In your dream
You went to heaven
And there plucked a strange and beautiful flower
And what if
When you awoke
You had that flower in you hand
Ah, what then?”
The Galaxion 5000 is the ultimate flower, so close but out of reach, she simply had to be gently held and brought back, to be given life through motion. We had to do it, we had to bring her back.
The project is a centre point mandala for Galaxion.
