Italian design studio Pininfarina SpA has presented renders of the stylish Teorema concept. Interestingly, the designers of not only the Italian, but also the Chinese studio took part in the creation of this prototype.
The car itself is entirely developed using virtual reality technology. This means that not a single physical model was created in the process, and even now it exists exclusively in the form of a computer model.
It is curious that Pininfarin’s specialists first designed the interior, and only then took up the body. The concept itself is an executive car with the most streamlined design.
There are no familiar doors on the Pininfarina Teorema: the car has a glass roof-hood, which moves forward and tilts, after which all that remains to get into the cabin is to step over the side. According to the developers, this decision made it possible to make the body stiffer and lighter.
There is only one driver’s seat in front. It is located in the center, but there is no steering wheel or pedals: as planned, the concept car is a full-fledged drone. However, the Italians still provided for a certain “manual mode”, which allows you to control the car using two steering levers.
Note that the Theorem lacks not only traditional controls, but also displays. Instead of the latter, numerous projection screens with augmented reality technology are used here.
On the “gallery” of the prototype are the most comfortable seats, while the developers have provided the ability to expand the intermediate seats of the second row. By the way, with their help you can even get two berths.
Behind the backs of the rear seats there is a place for placing various luggage, while access to the “trunk” is carried out directly from the passenger compartment – through the central aisle.
According to the Italian studio, the conceptual Pininfarina Teorema reaches a length of 5,400 mm, while its height is only 1,400 millimeters. The prototype is an electric car, but there is no information about its technical “stuffing” yet.
Pininfarina has already announced that they plan to build a working copy of the model, and the Australian engineering firm Benteler Automotive will be the supplier of the equipment.
The latter will provide the Italians with the BEDS (Benteler Electric Drive System) platform, and the aforementioned car projection display will receive from the Swiss company WayRay. It is expected that the first “live” sample of the Theorem will be shown in the near future, but only to a limited circle of people.
