The Seat Brisa
The Seat Brisa could be the ultimate in enviromentally-friendly vehicles. It's only a 'study' at this stage, but the streamlined solar-powered sports car looks great. A bit like a German wooden toy, but the (almost) real deal.
Designed by Miguel Ángel Iranzo Sánchez, it's open to the elements – both wind and sun ('brisa' means breeze in Spanish). The translucent elastomere shell is lined with nano-fotovoltaic cells, which power the rear-wheel-mounted motor. Its floorpan is made of plywood, and streamlined like a sailboat. Lovely. Can't wait to see it in action. RM
