M103 - Maverick Heat | Voiture de Police. Design Julian Meagher.
Thunderlane was inspired by the streets of 1960's New York. At this time there was a sense of boldness in design, Playforever is honoured to pay homage to the 'slab-sided' vehicles that had such an impact on style.
Straight out of 1960s New York, our Maverick Heat vehicles are a bold representation of the famous ‘slab-sided’ vehicles of the era. Racing through busy streets, lights flashing and sirens screaming; with distinctive flat sides and super large surface areas, this was a time for boldness and confidence in design.
A hip, cool, statement piece that takes us back to the days of cop shows and the streets of New York, Maverick Heat is a toy to be treasured by all ages.
A fascination with vehicles was birthed when Julian Meagher at aged eleven would ride around on his bike searching for tucked-away super cars in local underground car parks. Riding 3 stories down and peeking under dust covers while marvelling at the shiny badges, forms and gorgeous paint finishes of the Countach, Muira and Dino. Discovering these thoroughbreds at a young age was integral to the growth of his obsession. 30 years on, Meagher now an award winning industrial designer and label owner harks back to those years of wonder by creating a line of timeless art-toys.
Designed in the United Kingdom.
With decades of studying automotive styling cues and figuring out how cars are put together, Meagher hones his research into a coherent series of vehicles. Classics, Midi's, Mini's and Mavericks are an eclectic mix of Art, Fashion, Traditional Product Design, Modernism and of course Car Styling.
