The Bizzarrini Veleno is an aggressive but profoundly green biohydrogen-powered supercar of the future. Designed by Borys Dabrowski, a 21-year old desgined the forward concept for his final year at Coventry University.
Dabrowski was specially crafted to pay tribute to Giotto Bizzarrini, a famous car designer and engineer.
2011 for his final year at Coventry University.The concept makes use of various technologies of the future that give it some very cool traits. For example, technologies that will take off weight and pump up the energy efficiency making the car move at higher speeds. Coming with an electric motor and a fuel-cell system with nanotube tanks, hydrogen is generated from renewable sources like algae and organic waste making the car is a green machine. Another super innovative feature that Dabrowski designed into the car are wheels that use rollers similar to those of use in “mecanum wheels” that actually enable the car to move laterally, how cool and practical is that?! As Borys explains, “ I wanted to design a vehicle which brought together the look and feel of one of his machines with the kind of futuristic technologies I think will be commonplace in 2030.”
For inspiration, Dabrowski looked at his natural surroundings taking cues from the “poison dart frog” giving the coupe an organic feel. The inspiration is even more evident when examining the actual name Veleno, which means “venom” in Italian. Structural elements are made from “CentrAL” a composite material with layers of aluminum and glass fiber as well as “Graphene” a super strong, one atom-thick mesh layer making the car sturdy but light.
We love the amazing design that will leave everyone with their jaws dropped each time the car drives down the road. But what is more special is that finally we have an icon that is no longer a gas guzzler but green, eco-savy vehicle that dares to examine new technologies. With cars that look as cool and are as good to the environment, let’s hope that 2030 gets here quickly!
