A nanostructure made of carbon atoms, resembling a real world buggy car has been designed respecting the sp2 bonding of the carbons as present in graphene and derived systems. The components of the carbon nanobuggy (nanotubes, nanotori, nanojunctions and nanogears) had been observed and tested for their stability in previous works, endorsing the stability and the plausibility of the nanobuggy itself. The resulting nanobuggy is optimized using MM+ force field.
