Seat Brisa, the solar-powered love seat of the sports car world

via DVICE by Kevin Hall on 8/28/08


he Seat Brisa is a sports car, but not the kind that’ll burn rubber down the road with a gas-guzzling roar. Instead, its hood is covered with photo-voltaic cells that power an electric engine tied to the rear motor. Designer Miguel Ángel Iranzo Sánchez of Spain remarked in his notes, “As sail boats are propelled by the wind, the Seat Brisa is propelled by the sun.”

It stays nice and light thanks to its trim, backless design and its aerodynamic shape should have your hair whipping back in no time. “I wanted it to look very Mediterranean,” Sánchez notes, “very flamenco!”
