Gabriel Ø is the name given to this stunning steampunk style sidecar. Straight out of the imagination of Italian 3D artists Lorenzo Gestri and Marco Furlanetto. Their 2010 concept continues to fascinate fans of the Steampunk genre and beyond.

The name Gabriel comes from the well known Archangel who was the inspiration for the design of several pieces including the silver head that adorns the front of the sidecar.

The design of the motorcycle is deeply influenced by steampunk culture, an artistic movement encompassing literature, fashion, cinema, music and product design. Steampunk is a subgenre of sci-fi that merges modern technology and Victorian atmospheres in a fantasy world filled with anachronistic mechanical creations.
Therefore, the way this sidecar is supposed to work is anything but conventional. The mathematical symbol Ø (zero or empty set) was added to the name to further highlight the impossibility to reproduce a similar vehicle in real life.

When you see concepts like Head Turner Custom’s Kraken Trike, you think that somewhere in the world there will be someone who will make Gabriel come true.
