F1 All-Electric Series to Feature Brilliant Bluebird GTL Concept

Formula E is shaping up nicely and here’s an example of the type of car expected to feature.

You may be pleasantly surprised at the cars that will compete at the FIA's upcoming Formula E series. Typically an electric racecar is as lacking in acoustics as it is in aesthetics; their design more focused on efficiency than electrifying styling. With the unveiling of the Bluebird GTL Formula E racing car concept, it's clear that this won't be the case with the cars set to compete at the upcoming Formula E series.

Part Dark Knight Batmobile, part closed-cockpit Le Mans prototype and with a hint of F1 design, the all-electric concept showcases the latest advances made in aerodynamics. Speaking with The Charging Point, Bluebird's Don Wales said: "Electric racing, with the FIA behind it, is going to be a big thing, and if we're in it at the dawn of that then Bluebird should be a very strong brand for the future." It also hopes to attract sponsorship before the Formula E series begins; with races penciled in to start in 2014.
