Insane Dendrobium Electric Hypercar Partnered with Williams F1 Team

Singapore-based company Vanda Electrics has released new photos and video previewing its Dendrobium electric hypercar prior to the vehicle’s debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show later this month.

In January Vanda Electrics released teaser images of the Dendrobium along with minor details on the hypercar’s platform and powertrain, but not much else. This latest release again keeps exact details to a minimum, however it does reveal certain aspects of the interior and exterior including the dash, headlights and grille.

Vanda says the Dendrobium’s exterior has been designed with downforce in mind and as such integrates racecar-inspired features like large front intake openings, a huge Le Mans-prototype style rear diffuser and a large fixed rear wing. The motorsports inspiration continues with a carbon-fiber monocoque developed by the Williams Formula 1 team and a multi-motor electric powertrain also developed by the British racing outfit.

The Dendrobium’s cabin will feature leather upholstery provided by Scotland’s Bridge of Weir leather company, which will be joined by an abundance of carbon-fiber on the dash, doors and elsewhere. The preview video also reveals a digital gauge cluster flanked by two other digital screens and a flat bottom carbon-fiber steering wheel. For the full hypercar effect, the performance EV will use a type of dihedral doors that open similarly to a Dendrobium flower – an orchid that is native to the island of Singapore.

The Vanda Electrics Dendrobium will make its debut at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show in March. The automaker says the vehicle will debut in concept form at the show but will be nearly production ready.
