An Italian design house named Umberto Palermo Design in the near future will introduce an electric-powered sport car concept named Luce as well as a tuned version of Tesla's Model S.
First up, the Luce is a rather sexy GT featuring a sharp body which we would definitely want to see morph into a production car. Only a concept at this point, the vehicle tips the scales at just 2,645 lbs (1,200 kg) thanks to a lightweight body made from recyclable materials wrapping an aluminum monocoque.

The design shape of LED lights are made slanting with the front display without the grille and on the front is actually used for the airways. At the bottom spoiler there is a metal frame with unknown primary function.

The curves of the body line from front to rear looks very dominating, and is designed to reinforce the sporty impression on the Luce overall. The Italian electric sports car sits on 20-inch wheels with the dimensions, 455 cm (179-inch) long, 196 cm (77-inch) wide and 124 cm (49-inch) tall.
As quoted from AvtoMoto1, Luce had a great power of 288 hp (215 kilowatts) that generated from a series of electric motors. As for the generated torque is reached up to 370 Nm (273 lb-ft). For a single battery charge, Luce claimed to be able to cover a distance of 340 kilometers (211 miles) only, shorter than the Tesla Model S which is able to cover a distance of 487 km (303 miles).
