Vapour GT Supercar Design Concept
supercars | September 10, 2014
This incredible supercar design concept was created by the Swedish design studio, Gray Design. To me, it looks somewhat like a Lamborghini Aventador on steroids, but the extremely aggressive, angular design is meant to appeal to the most radical automotive enthusiasts. There are no subtleties about this car, with every edge and angle done in an extreme way.
The open top two-seater has a lightweight, mid-mounted 2.0-liter supercharged Ford Duratec engine that is fed plenty of air thanks to large air intakes in the front of the car and air scoops above the driver’s head. The car also has strengthened glass aerofoils at the front and rear of the car and is flanked by large side intakes. Based on the Caterham SP 300 R racing chassis, the car’s body is done in carbon fiber resulting in a curb weight of less than 1,985 pounds, giving the car a theoretical 0-to-60 mph time of under 3.2 seconds.
The car was designed for the Zeus Twelve brand and will be featured in its own racing game on iPhone and Android platforms. Although currently just a design concept, Gray Design is shopping the car around to clients and, if there is interest, it will be custom built by the company’s team of automotive experts who have been involved in the development of the Bugatti Veyron and other extreme builds to guarantee that the driving experience will match the visual impact of the car.
