Regenerating Passion
The aim of this project is to regenerate most of the lost energy in a vehicle. Today's cars still seem to be using a lot of antique know-how whereas in other fields there is a system of regenerating power through movement. This car is about thinking how to improve sustainability by designing every element to aspire to less energy consumption. The technical elements will be part of the design as a combination of a nice fluid shape in contrast with precise technical elements.
