Throughout his career, Lobo participated in numerous automobile design competitions. The present lot is a study for the Ford Probe V, an experimental concept car that debuted in 1985. Featuring an aerodynamic body and sleek details, this futuristic car featured covers for all four wheels making it appear as though the vehicle was hovering just above ground. Though the Probe V was never mass-produced, this unique design predicted the efficient and curvaceous car models that we are familiar with today.
