Reduced fuel consumption and lower emissions are whatís seen a lot these days on the latest production models and concept vehicles. But donít think that performance will lag for these green cars. One prime example is Westfield Sportscarsí iRACER, an all-electric race car created to win competitions. The carís designer is Elliott Hawkins, a graduate from the world renowned Royal College of Arts vehicle design course. Westfield Managing Director, Julian Turner said that the concept has a bold look and is ď99% representativeĒ of the production vehicle. The iRACER uses the following materials: composites, aluminum, recyclable plastics and a stretched lycra skin over an aluminum framework. As a result, the carís body is lightweight, low-cost, and aerodynamically efficient. Project Manager, Paul Faithfull, said that some materials (like fabric) has major benefits for racing but is obviously unfit for road use. When in a race, itís of value that the bodywork can change in a few minutes, and that changing the color and sponsors, as well as repairs can be done quickly.
