A classic-styled electric racing car concept

The world's electric cars is currently going very fast in development. Where many the world's manufacturers are competing to present this zero emission car. However, it turns out that the presence of environmentally friendly electric-powered four-wheelers has been pionered since the early 20th century.

As reported from Carscoops, although electric-powered vehicles have been developed over 100 years ago. However, due to several factors, such as the discovery of large petroleum reserves around the world, so it made the price of oil is very cheap. So it was not surprising that vehicles with internal combustion engines were commonplace and electric powered vehicles was not a wise choice at the time.

Of course, the condition is very contradictory when compared to the current situation, where there has been a significant decline in world's oil reserves which makes prices tend to fluctuate erratically (not to mention the increasingly strong environmental issues in global forums). Thus making the production of conventional-engined vehicles threatened. This of course makes automotive manufacturers have to rack their brains to find alternatives to their production vehicles. And the eco-friendly electric-powered vehicles are one of the most relevant and logical answers today.

As if to combine those two different conditions as mentioned above in one frame of times and shapes, a designer presented an electric-powered racing car concept called the Helvezzia Tipo-6 which was looks inspired by the early 1930s racing cars. It is known that the concept car is the work of Alexander Imnadze Baldini, a designer who was also involved in the Alfa Romeo Giulia designing process.

According to the designer, the vehicle has been designed as a racing car, although it can also be used on public roads. At a glance, the concept car resemblanced in design to classic racing cars such as the Alfa Romeo Tipo B, Alfa Romeo 2900 Scuderia Ferrari and others, but has utilized the power of the electric motors. The concept car featured a large chrome grille on the front, and has an open wheel design with a set of thin racing tires and one spare tire side-straped.

With the status of the low, slender and very cool racing car, the Helvezzia Tipo-6's cabin seems only has one classic racing bucket seat equipped with a three-spoke steering wheel which has three different gauges attached on it, and is also equipped with a set of instrument panels attached to its simple dashboard.

Do not expect performance data such as 0-100 kph acceleration times, and the top speed of this concept car, because the designer doesn't include any data about it and all that is known only is the powertrain is the electric motors. So, it's clear that the Helvezzia Tipo-6 is just a design study that won't go into production, but as far as we're concerned it can be made and realized. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS | TECHZLE ]
