Spark Racing Technologies – the guys who make the Formula E Cars – have just dropped this. The first renders of the SRT05e. The 2018 Formula E Concept. In the concept world we are often teased by Alien invading spaceship renders that fall far short when the design turns into metalwork, this concept though has every chance of becoming reality.
Why? in 2018 the Formula E car will need to travel twice the distance it currently does during a race with no mid-race pit stops. It is also going to be much more powerful, and due to the power generating batteries needed to up the power it will be heavier too. This means it needs to glide through the air like the aforementioned alien invading spaceship.
This means this Formula E concept has much more chance of making it out of the computer. Aero will play a huge part with a streamlined, futuristic design key to its success. It is required. It is not a ploy to attract attention to bump up the order book. Regardless of the tech and whether it will make it in to the wild, you must agree – it looks jaw-dropping. It is perhaps the most amazing looking racer of recent times. Formula 1 take note, Formula E is upping their game.
