AMM-V16c Badlander by Grebo-Guru AMM-V16c Badlander by Grebo-Guru
Here's a multiform roadstriker used by the evil Axis terrorist group in the Mekton supplement "Operation Rimfire." I tell ya, designing a transformable car that doesn't look like it belongs amidst the Transformers is hard.

Here's a link to a colored image of the Badlander:

Anyway, this image and design is TM and copyright and everything R. Talsorian Games, inc. No infringement intended, etc.

Ok, now i´m really impressed. I managed to re-think your idea of the transformation mechanics (what goes where when transforming).
Things i couldn´t understand: where goes the club in car mode, and, the cockpit looks broad enough to be a two-seater, one pilot and 1 passenger?

Well, thank you, I'm pleased to impress. :-)
Now for your questions...
The club:
The handle telescopes, so the two smaller lengths collapse inside the thickest part (the head of the club). That tubular shape then goes between the calves -- see how there's a tubular concavity in the back of each lower leg? Basically, if the car-mode Badlander had a hood you could lift up (it doesn't) you'd find the collapsed mace right smack dab in the middle.
The cockpit:
The crew cabin is indeed broad enough to be a two-seater; it can hold one pilot and one passenger/navigator/bag of hand grenades and snacks, whatever... :-)

Damn, you really thought this one through Eyepopping
And snacks are always a good idea :la:

Heh, indeed! :D One of the things I try to keep in mind whenever I'm designing mecha is: could this be made into a workable model kit and/or toy? I don't always succeed, but I try...

Well, in THIS case, i´m sure it would work.
I´m quite good at 3-dimensional thinking, and i consider it doable.

I did like it truly...for a Transformers-like, Dorvack-like setting or a Galvionesque campaign (Misty Chaser...Love Chaser...). It wasn't the best choice for OR. Too much toy-like in a pleasurable way.

Agreed. This was probably the least of my OR designs.

Besides the Ex-Sentinel this is my second favorite Mecha.  While the one Bike model was alright to me the 'look' just didn't seem right for some reason :(
