Revealed: Daniel Simon’s Vision for @Roboracing
Created by the genius behind Hollywood Sci-Fi design masterpieces such as Tron:Legacy, hopes were high when Daniel Simon was announced as the Chief Design Officer for the futuristic Roborace concept.
Well his vision is finally here and it does not disappoint. We like it so much we’ve put together some colour schemes we’d like to see out there.
What drove Daniel Simon in his approach?
“My goal was to create a vehicle that takes full advantage of the unusual opportunities of having no driver without ever compromising on beauty,” he said. “Racing engineers and aerodynamicists have worked with me from the beginning to strike that balance. The Roborace is as much about competition as it is entertainment. Therefore – and quite unusual in today’s racing world – beauty was very high on our agenda and we work hard to merge the best performance with stunning styling.
“It was important to us that we generate substantial downforce without unnecessary parts cluttering the car to maintain a clean and iconic look. This is largely made possible by using the floor as the main aerodynamic device and we are currently developing active body parts that are more organic and seamless than solutions today.”
