Default Lancia Haizea @ 2006 Geneva Show

Lancia Haizea @ 2006 Geneva Show



Quote:
IED Turin at International Motor Show of Geneva

For the third consecutive year, IED Turin will be present at the Geneva International Motor Show with Haizea, the real scale concept car designed by the students of the Master RSP in Transportation Design - work experience (a.y. 2004-2005), the result of a research into the identity of the Lancia brand.

The full scale model (length 4.965 mm, width 1.935 mm, height 1.420mm & wheelbase 2.720 mm) has been developed around a frame devised in such a way as to provide the utmost level of both active and passive safety. The mechanical parts of the rear wheel drive engine are housed in a central-rear position, and together with the addition of two electric motors placed above the front wheels, an excellent compromise in terms of distribution of weight, traction and mass has been reached.

The passenger compartment, designed around a central chassis developed lengthwise and to which the seats and the instrumentation panel are anchored, absorbs energy in case of a head on collision and provides the structure with both an aesthetic and a functional purpose, not just a load bearing one. This particular chassis structure, “dressed” externally in such a way as to highlight the vehicles architectural values, plays on the asymmetrical disposition of the vehicle’s masses in order to induce a strong sense of movement in the viewer. This movement recreates a feeling of speed thus arousing the sensation of an encounter with a wind (Haizea: “wind”, in the Basque language)

It looks like it hasn't fully entered our dimension yet.

Come on, make a nice Stratos homage in Alitalia colors.

Edit: Wait, they did at 05 Geneva!?!?

I think it looks cool. The backend looks a little too american-luxury-ish though

Automotive design has approached the level of "high art". Designers must get together and say to each other "Let's see what we can foist on the public and get away with!"

Put a horn on the front and call it the rhino.

The Stratos is being floated by some English investor who bought the rights to the name. Prodrive agreed to do a feasibility study for it, and I haven't heard much since.
