Originally slated for a release at the canceled 2020 Geneva Motor Show, the GFG Bandini Dora has been unveiled. The car is a fascinating two-seat all-wheel-drive electric prototype from Italian company GFG Style.
The Bandini Dora is the 7th prototype developed by the company that was started by the father-son duo of Giorgetto and Fabrizio Giugiaro in 2015.
Some of the earlier prototypes included the Kangaroo concept car unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and the Vision 2030 that was revealed at the 2019 Riyadh Motor Show in Saudi Arabia.
The car comes with two electric motors (one on each axel) that combine to produce 536hp (400 Kw) and 500 lb-ft of torque, a blend that ensures that the Barini Dora completes the 0-60mph sprint in a time of 3.3 seconds.
The car’s motors derive their power from a massive 90KW battery that gives the car an estimated range of over 280 miles on a full charge.
On the design front, the Bandini Dora comes with a rather clean and unmistakable design as it ditches the roof and opts for a rather unique curvy windshield.
From the sides, it is hard to tell that the car has no roof since it comes fitted with an A-Pillar that stretches from the top of the front wheels to the rear-mounted spoiler. Another outstanding feature of the car’s body is its fully automated scissor doors that would definitely have heads turning.
Speaking about the car’s design and unique windshield, Giugiaro says: “Inspired by the Halo of Formula One, we thought about creating a car that had a clean windshield as it used to be used with no reinforcements, thus being as linear and light as possible”.
He adds: “To solve this need, I thought of an out-and-out superstructure that would integrate into the style with an accentuated structural and protective function for both the driver and passenger.”
