This is a new limited production Finnish electric supercar which is nearly ready for the market now. The car was originally designed and built to utilize a V-8 petrol engine, however, a few year ago a decision was made to develop an alternative electric drivetrain powered by high-density batteries, so the majority of the rear half of the chassis was altered to accommodate the new components there.
New CNC-milled aluminum uprights, A-arms, door hinges and other smaller custom components were also designed in the recent years to further optimize the weight and performance of the car. The car uses plenty of 3d printed parts, which are purposely designed to break in a small-speed car crash to reduce or fully eliminate the damage of the connected carbon-fibre body panels. Last summer the regular door gas springs were replaced with powerful hydraulic units activated via a remote control.
The NURBS modeling of the exterior was done in Rhino 5 back in 2014. Since then the development of the door jams and internal mounting panels behind the exterior (also known as “body-in-white”), chassis, suspension and lots of mechanical components took me a few extra years. Some of the later parts since 2018 were made in Rhino 6, and currently I use the new Rhino 7 for the design of the last remaining components such like window actuators, latches and a few others.
