Here’s another go-around into the future with yet another design study based on an electric sports car. The only difference is that this study wasn’t put together by students as a final project, but was designed by none other than Pagani interior/exterior designer, Antonio Bruno. His project, the Electrodynamics Concept, features a design made of unstructured volumes and, of course, an electric powertrain.
The Electrodynamics is much like any other sports car in that it has a very aerodynamic shape. That shape is then visually broken up by black and white exterior features and a set of futuristic wheels. When talking about the exterior design of the concept, Antonio Bruno said: "The absence of a brand reference has contributed to the free forms and is totally devoted to aerodynamic influences and perceptions typical of product design. The upper dome is formed from a tinted acrylic component that stretches up to the front bumper, where it could hide the additional headlights."
We can go on about the look of the car, but the real focus is the origin of power. The future is obviously in electric cars so this concept is destined to be powered by four permanent magnetic electric motors placed inboard and connected to the wheels via drive shafts. What these motors will do for performance times is obviously unknown at this point.
Whether we’ll actually see this independent design study out on the streets is highly doubtful. However, the redeeming factor of having designers who can come up with studies like this is that it gets everyone’s brains to churn out better and better ideas for the future and that is always a good thing.
