VizualTech ‘s Bo Zolland has created a 3D rendering of his proposed Delithium Concept which hints at what a future green hot rod could look like. The concept receives its odd name by combining the two words delirium and lithium, to create delithium, a perfect moniker for the concept since it’s a visual shocker that runs on lithium ion batteries.
The car’s body will be made of lightweight but extremely tough materials. The car’s paddle shift gear technology will also add to fuel efficiency and driving comfort. The technology used for the Delithium will enable 50 miles of emission free driving.
The imaginary power source for the Delithium Concept is an electric motor that produces 290kW (389 hp) and 373 lb.-ft. (470 Nm) of torque. Performance figures for this radical roadster include a 0-60 mph time of just 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph).
The Delithium car will have Formula 1 proportions for superb handling with driver and passenger midway along the wheelbase. The body sides will feature a concave scallop for a visual look and will also include functional air ducts. Moreover, the car will be equipped with a digital display to deliver information regarding the electric drive system.
But there is a dark side to all this, too. Thus, Bo Zolland accepts that the car will need a
gas/electric hybrid engine for long distance traveling. That means that the car will generate power but only for a limited time and range. However, since the Delithium is merely a concept, there is still time for serious improvements to be made in order to eliminate these disadvantages.
