Click above for a high-res gallery of the I.DE.A ERA concept

Last May, the I.DE.A Institute – an engineering and consultancy firm based in Turin, Italy – threw together a concept in 30 days to celebrate its 30th anniversary. At next month's Geneva Motor Show, I.DE.A will show a more evolved version of the roadster in the form of the ERA concept.

The open-top two-door gains a set of gull-wing doors, more sculpted sides, a two-tier trunk and a tube-frame chassis in an attempt to show off the firm's design and engineering prowess. Although the interior scaffolding and collagen-infused grille surround may leave something to be desired, we're looking forward to seeing the ERA in person next week.

      I'm curious how gull-wing doors will work on a car with no roof.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Floating doors, of course.

        That was easy, bring another one, ehehehehehe.

      Man, and I thought the 2010 Mazda3's smile was bad. This has a sly smile.

        Funny you say that, because the first thing I thought when I saw the upper grille was "Aston Martin."
