The Auto Expo 2016 was the largest ever in its recorded history and has just finished bombarding the market with lots of new rides. There were new Mercs, Audis, BMWs, Marutis, Mahindras and the amazing Ford Mustang. But away from the mainstream was a car that set the pulse racing. Offered by a Bangalore based industrial design studio and prototyping company, Motormind, the Hyperion1 can be called as the Indian iteration of the KTM X-Bow.
The Hyperion1 a product of 3 years of research and development, is an open-wheeled car with F1 styling and most of the creature comforts. The company says, it is the perfect balance between a road car and a track car, a first in India. The exterior is visually aesthetic, with the front getting an agressive split feature. The sides and tail play host to ‘aero style spoilers’ and the rear features cooling ducts and a diffuser. So its aerodynamically efficient. Inside their are two body-hugging, fully-adjustable leather seats separated by a ‘driver-centric’ carbon-fibre central. The fully adjustable steering wheel is 3D printed. The car also offers actuated vertical lifting doors which add to the aesthetics.
All-in-one this car has to be one of the finest attempts to built a hyper by an Indian manufacturer. #makeinindia
