Red-Batmobile concept from Sbarro

The official word is that the red speedster that is the ES-13 Flèche Rouge (Red Arrow) was launched in June by the 2013 students of the Espera Montbéliard School of Design in France. We don't want to sound mean or anything, but maybe those student should have been kept back a semester or two.

From some angles, it looks like the ideal combination between a racing car and the Batmobile, but then you get to the nose and you see the horror. This red arrow is blunt and looks like an art-deco sausage-making machine with a wing on top. And before you jump to say that thing in the middle is an air intake, we'll point out there's a piece of plexiglass in the middle.

Powered by the PSA 1.6-litre turbo from the DS3 the car delivers 156 bhp, and considering the car weighs less than 500 kg, this should make for serious performance. Looking over the concept you can see inboard mounted push-rod suspension, similar to what you get in single-seater racers, which will give the concept some genuine handling credentials.

The drivetrain and technology is irrelevant though, as the car’s utterly bonkers styling is what draws the crowds, looking like what would happen if the Batmobile tried to mate with a Transformer.
This almost certainly won’t make true production, but Sbarro often build cars to order, so here’s hoping a rich businessman somewhere has unfulfilled superhero fantasies and a Bruce Wayne-sized fortune to throw at it. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOEVOLUTION]
