The Automobile industry is becoming one of the most advanced industry on the globe. With change in trends, this industry is leaping towards a different future.
Nowadays, a recent trend in the sportscar is seen, is that most of the supercars manufactures are producing their models without windshield. The latest example is seen in McLaren’s newly revealed Elva model.
McLaren unveiled the Elva supercar earlier the previous month, and among its many unique features, it included one that has become trendy among supercar brands in recent years.
According to the recent leaked images and rumours, the Elva is the first production McLaren that doesn’t have a windshield. In fact, it doesn’t have a roof, either and also Windows on it’s model!
As striking and unique as the Elva is, it’s not the first performance car to adopt this kind of appearance. In this decade alone, there have been a number of other performance vehicles that were created with the little-to-no-windshield design.
One such other example is, the Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept technically has a windshield – It’s barely a windshield.
Unveiled in 2013, the CC100 Speedster was released as a celebration of Aston Martin’s only victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and it comes as no surprise that the Le Mans-winning DBR1 served as the main inspiration behind the concept, though it must be said that Aston Martin took certain design liberties to give the concept a design that lived up to the design trends of the current decade.
We could feel up the speedster-style body and the see-through doors as products of that goal, but it’s the invisible windscreen that caught a lot of people’s attention through out it’s model.
The CC Speedster was powered by a zesty V-12 engine that produced 565 horsepower. The unit is mated with a six-speed sequential transmission that sent power to the CC100’s rear wheels, enabling the concept to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in four seconds on its way to an electronically limited top speed of 180 mph, which is more than enough.
Nowadays company are focusing more on no window to speak of thoughts, and moving with the current trends in the automotive world.
