Aston Martin VIE GH Anniversary 100 ConceptDecember 15th, 2013
Ok, it’s name is a mouthful, and it’s not even a real car, but we have to hand it to Russian industrial designers Grigory Gorin and Vlad Mishin for coming up with such a sexy looking concept car. Inspired by vehicles ranging from Aston’s classic 1935 Ulster to the 2009 One-77, the VIE GH simultaneously looks to Aston’s storied past 100 years and its promising future. Though we see quite a bit more One-77 than Ulster in this concept’s curvaceous modern lines.
The team’s concept design envisions an all-wheel drive electric vehicle, which would include monocoque construction built using carbon fiber and body panels made from lightweight aluminum. Power would be supplied by hydrogen generator, which would in turn operate a set of four electric motors. Other high tech touches include adjustable glass with opacity control and some kind of “electronic paint,” though its function isn’t described in depth.
If you’re wondering what the VIE stands for, it’s Vehement, Intelligent, Electro. We have no idea what the GH stands for though.
