This futuristic snowmobile is the work of an automotive and industrial designer named Fernando Palma Fanjul.
“Malamute is a new type of vehicle that allows full use of a white environment,” Fanjul stated of his concept. “In deserts of ice, snow or dust, the tracks will provide transportation through the varied elements.”
The idea behind the Burton Malamute snowmobile was a strong machine with a secure construction, allowing recreational use, sporting use, and tactical use.
The concept was also based on an idea of freedom of movement and adaptability to terrain conditions and use in a variety of activities.
The vehicle is rear-engined and is propelled by two tracks, which are designed with snowmobile traction in mind.
The steering is done with two skis mounted in the front on swivels. The suspension allows the skis to rise and fall according to the terrain and take turn agilely. The ski system is based on the feet of a skiier.
The interior of the snowmobile is designed with two occupants in the front with another occupant in the rear, where there is also an area for equipment.
