A few years ago, Identity first surfaced as an automaker when they introduced the I1 Concept at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show. We didn’t hear a whole lot from these guys until this year, when they showed us their second supercar concept, the Y2.
Just like the I1, the Y2 is a car that’s built on inspiration; in this case, one of the most feared predators in the world, the great white shark. Using the model of the nautical beast, Identity designed the Y2 to look every bit like the automotive predator it’s being hyped up to be.
The whole car isn’t complete and it might even take a while for Identity to have a finished product, but the initial returns point to a car that carries some pretty high-end materials, including carbon fiber, aluminum, and kevlar. In addition to that, Identity is indicating that the Y2 will carry an impressive V12 powertrain that can produce upwards of 500 horsepower.
The numbers all sound good on paper, but they don’t mean a whole lot if we don’t hear about the Y2 in the foreseeable future. Let’s hope that’s not the case and we see this impressive-looking supercar out on the road in the not-so-distant future.
