As you will know from browsing on the Limo Broker website, we love the weird and wonderful side of the vehicle market. From lavish limousines fitted with karaoke machines to vintage Rolls Royces that allow you to travel back in time, in our opinion, the more unique the car, the better the travel experience. This is why we were thrilled to come across what people are calling ‘the world’s weirdest electric car’; a one-seater limousine that has been named ‘Prototype 10’.
Unveiled at California’s Pebble Beach classic car show, the car is said to “recapture the spirit of early speedsters” from the early 1900s.
But, where has this electric super car come from? Well, according to a recent release, this is the brainchild of Nissan’s luxury brand; Infiniti. Having been working on the design for some time, the brand has been credited for their innovative mock-up, with many industry thought leaders believing one-seater cars as long as limos to be the cars of the future.
What’s it like to drive?
At the helm of this project is Karim Habib, a Canadian designer that boasts over twenty years of experience at BMW before joining Nissan.
“For us, electrification means performance – our cars will be powerful, efficient, and highly rewarding to drive, and Prototype 10 is a physical representation of our electrified future” says Habib.
“The Infiniti Prototype 10 echoes the layout and design of early speedsters”.
“This period saw the creation of some of the most evocative car designs of all time, where power was celebrated through high-powered single-seat competition cars.”
Therefore, he says, “it is appropriate that we found inspiration in an optimistic bygone era in which cars were characterised by the simple love of driving.”
