Default Sunbeam Tiger Concept




Quote:
The Sunbeam Tiger Concept is a sports car that will wow you completely. Its designed by Ryan Skelley, who is a Coventry University design student and it was created to mark the 100th year of the original Sunbeam car.
This sports car has an electric engine and it can speed to 160mph. It can work on a single charge for up to 800 miles.





The entire car is made from materials that are environment-friendly. For example it has vegetable oil resin body panels and the seats are made from Biofabric. This is something quite innovative to implement in a sports car.

The carís design is pretty stylish and eye-catching.

How does that in any way resemble this?



I mean if you are going to call it something with some history then at least attempt to make it look somewhat similar.

Also, is this not just a design student or something making a design? Did he also design this amazing electric motor and the battery packs as well? I mean the article is throwing out numbers like this thing is already built as a production ready prototype or something.

Neat concept, but will never see production even if it is viable.

I was excited... then I saw it, crapped myself, changed, looked at it, crapped myself again and decided to quit looking at it.

I can understand creating a cool design but why make up tech specs too?

Yea that in no way is original at all, it's a good looking concept but definitely not praise worthy for the designer.
