New supercar project: the "New Strada"
The AADA (The African Automotive Design Association) together with an Italian Engineering group headed by Leone Martellucci have started an ambitious project: to design and build a legendary Italian sports car.
The new supercar is called "New Strada" and is inspired by the classic 1969 Bizzarrini Strada GT 5300.
For his preliminary sketches, Jonathan Kasumba - the main designer for the project- took inspiration not only from the 1969 version of the Strada, but also immersed himself in the world of contemporary African Masks.
The project features: long hood, low roof and shallow windows. In African masks a lot of detail is place on the eyes, nose, mouth and facial surface texture; this is done to carefully portray the characters true nature.
