My Dream Car saves people when they are in a flood. If the car sees anyone in water, it will quickly go “peep peep” and rescue them. NITHISH D. HETTIGE | VIC
My Dream Car has a special wheels and road based on a solar system. My car has special features including special wheels that have solar panels too. When these wheels touch the solar road it creates energy automatically. And on top of the tyre there are special springs on the steel frame that help to transfer energy into the engine. We can create a very friendly environment using this system (trees, birds and our air). If we build this system for the whole world, it might be a very safe place. SASEN PEIRIS | VIC
I get bored in the car so I have designed a car that my five senses will love! My car sings to my ears, smells the flowers, tastes the ice cream and sprinkles, looks colourful like rainbows and makes me feel amazing! And I have games to touch and feel on the back of the seats. I wish my car was real. CLAUDIA FIELDS | WA
The idea behind my Dream Car is that the car harvests citrus fruits and processes it into things like orange juice, lemonade, sweets, marmalade, citrus oil, etc. Once finished, it will be packed and ready to be distributed to the market. It’s a very efficient and multi function car for citrus farmers. CLARISSA HENDRAWAN | NSW
My Dream Car is a mobile orphanage car. It rescues children who have no one to look after them. This unicorn-shaped car will whisk children away from the neglected surroundings to a magical dreamland filled with happiness and love to create good memories. It provides food, accommodation, medical care, education and more. The children will be taught life skills so they can build a better future. GRACE NGUYEN | NSW
My car travels at exactly 299,796,458 meters per second or “the speed of light” itself. Since my car travels at the speed of light, it moves so fast that you can simply travel back and forward in time. As you can see, the car is currently in the middle of traveling into the future. The floating images are some of the important inventions that have changed the world. TREY COCKMAN | WA
