To create a sports car that is fast, fun and can unmistakably unique. It is to be manufactured in small production runs, using fibre composition technologies and assembly by hand. A kit car in principle. The vast majority of components are to be harvested from a donor car… a BMW M5.
The team arrived at two solutions. One is inspired by classic European sports cars, Ferrari, Lotus and Alpha Romeo. The result was a sleek, sophisticated ‘mean machine’ born as a convertible… You know, an ‘air in your hair’ driving experience!
Our other solution was a slender, unique design with an exaggerated front end ‘inhaling copious amount of air’ to feed the hungry V10 motor and powerful rear end to handle the massive power produced.
A labour of love
Our process involved many night-time team sketching sessions, hours of 3D CAD modelling and hands on sculpturing. We also held visits to the UK and Sweden to visit track days and gain a better understanding for what these special customers ‘burn for’. The project was driven by our passion for form, design and of course the further development of our skills as designers.
