An obscure company called Vanda Electrics will unveil the Dendrobium, Singapore’s first hypercar, at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
The all-new electric hypercar also involves Williams Advanced Engineering, so you can expect to see advanced drivetrain and aerodynamic technology from Williams’ experience in Formula 1 racing. Vanda Electrics released a couple of teaser images on the hypercar and although no technical details have been announced, the Dendrobium is described as using electric drivetrains, possibly a multiple motor setup that uses technology from Williams’ hybrid Formula 1 units. These days, it wouldn’t be crazy for this hypercar to claim it outputs 1,000 hp and has a 600-mile range.
The extreme and sharp lines of the exterior styling puts a heavy focus on downforce and aerodynamics. As for its name? Well, it comes from the Dendrobium flower because the doors open in a manner similar to the flower. On the inside, the leather upholstery comes from Scotland’s Bridge of Weir Leather Company, with the material coming from heritage breeds.
Look for more information on the Dendrobium when it debuts at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, where AutoGuide.com will be reporting live.
