The car was first developed as a concept as early as in the 1990s (can you imagine something like this sketched out back then?!) with the model only coming to life now because the battery technology hadn’t evolved yet. The carbon fiber monocoque body has an unbelievably edgy aesthetic with a majority of straight lines and very tight curves. The automobile concept ditches the rear-view mirrors for cameras, and features suicide butterfly doors that open upward and backward, almost like a show of strength and power! The spoiler on the back of the car doubles up as a rather futuristic looking taillight, while the body forms a streamlined conical tip at the end with a secondary taillight almost looking like a hornet ready to sting!
The first design for an American car with a gasoline internal combustion engine was made in 1877 by George Selden of Rochester, New York . Selden applied for a patent for a car in 1879, but the patent application expired because the vehicle was never built. After a delay of sixteen years and a series of attachments to his application, on 5 November 1895, Selden was granted a United States patent ( . Patent 549,160 ) for a two-stroke car engine, which hindered, more than encouraged , development of cars in the United States. His patent was challenged by Henry Ford and others, and overturned in 1911.
