Classic Italian sportscar provides inspiration for modern EV.
The Moretti EGS compact electric sports car concept is the work of Brain Males, an automotive and transport design student from Coventry University who considered whether the transition from gasoline to electric cars could be eased by making them sexy and nostalgic. When creating the design, Brian looked back to small classic Italian racing cars, borrowing their smooth surfaces, two-tone paint jobs, and 1950s alloys and headlights. His main source of inspiration was the 1954 Moretti 750 Grand Sport, the defunct Italian carmaker’s most iconic model. The result is quite stunning.
