As automakers try to capture the market, they have to put in more work than ever to stand out from their competitors. That’s exactly what this new Lo Res car does.
The Lo Res model has a strong geometric body that makes it look like it came from another planet. Let’s take a closer look into the design and features, based on reports by
What brand came up with this strange-looking Lo Res Car?
The Lo Res car comes from a brand you might not expect: United Nude, a Dutch footwear company. It’s meant to be a design concept and while the Lo Res car can be driven, it doesn’t have particularly impressive power.
In 2017, the Lo Res car appeared in a music video for "New Freezer," from Rich The Kid featuring Kendrick Lamar, according to
The car won a Wallpaper Magazine Design Award in 2016 and has spread across the world. As of 2018, there were four vehicles available for exhibitions and films.
The shape of the car simplifies the design of the Lamborghini Countach by lowering the 3D resolution of the iconic model—hence the name Lo Res car.
Lo Res car specifications and features
The Lo Res model car isn’t a conventional model so it doesn’t feature the V12 engine of the Countach. Instead, it carries a small electric motor that gets about 30 mph. Carscoops reported that United Nude has plans to convert the engine to a hydrogen powertrain to make the science-fiction-esque car greener.
In terms of chassis and performance, the car performs like a golf cart. Despite its all-black appearance, you can see pretty well out of the Lo Res car. The body is made of polycarbonate and all the exterior panels are see-through even though the tint means you can’t see inside.
It might just be hard to get inside the car, since Carscoops said that the whole body opens like a clamshell. The Lo Res car offers seating for two, but it essentially has no safety features, not even basic ones like seatbelts or mirrors.
New cars need to stand out
It might not be the fastest car and it’s not really meant for driving, but the Lo Res car certainly has an eye-catching look. It’s one of the most unique concept cars available and the design isn’t that far off from vehicles like the
Tesla’s Cybertruck also features clean lines and a boxy shape that people either love or hate. These cars might not have a design that sticks, but it’s clear that automakers are working hard to come out with cars that stand out.
In the crowded truck segment, manufacturers like Tesla, Rivian, and General Motors have announced new vehicle features for each of their models. Rivian’s R1T is supposed to be able to make 360-degree turns and the Hummer EV features a Crab Mode that moves the truck diagonally.
