Green GT design study - Click above for a hi-res gallery
The paint is barely dry on their all-electric race car and already the gang at Green GT are thinking about what should come next. The ambitious Swiss-based team commissioned a design study from ISD Valencienne graduate, Thomas Clavet, who has come through with a eye-catching piece of automotive art. The head engineer of Green GT, Christophe Schwartz, seems pretty excited about the effort and envisions the design as the basis for both a Le Mans racer as well as a supercar for the street. He says
"The GreenGT design study could become our 2011 Le Mans Prototype electric racer or it could even become an electric road going supercar. There is a possibility to do both! The advantage of electric cars is that the only difference between a GreenGT electric racecar and road car is the electronic programming. It would be amazing to create two prototype race cars to compete in the 2011 24 hours of Le Mans and 22 road going supercars."While we think it's a pretty slick looking design, we can't help but wonder if some of the openings in the bodywork are really necessary for an electric car. Perhaps a little wind tunnel time would be of some benefit before frittering away too many francs. Still, it would be cool to see on a track somewhere, or better yet, in the ABG garage.
