There’s one thing about an outlandish idea automobile that sparks pleasure amongst auto followers all over the world. Positive, the angular styling, futuristic wheels, and bonkers inside are by no means going to see the actual world, however they’re enjoyable. The identical could be stated for many automobile configurators, which let you make your dream supercar within the spec you’d order, whereas figuring out full properly that you simply’ll by no means hit purchase. Now, Cupra has mixed these two made-up phenomena with its Darkish Insurgent idea.
In case you missed it:
The newest idea automobile from the model, which was spun out from Seat again in 2018, is a two-seat taking pictures brake that wouldn’t look misplaced in a Tron film.
On the skin, it’s all sharp angles with a pointed entrance finish that comes with an enormous splitter. There are additionally angular air intakes within the nostril and a few aero work down the aspect. The angular design continues on the rear, the place the entire automobile appears to have been formed round a gaping diffuser. There are additionally some neat triangular taillights, and a wing that helps intensify the automobile’s taking pictures brake stylings.
While you dive inside, issues are equally outlandish. Cupra gave the automobile a “gamified” steering wheel and shifter, and a few fairly sci-fi-looking shows within the cabin. There’s additionally a pair of race-ready bucket seats, delicate lighting and a complete heap of futuristic styling.
The entire thing appears bonkers, and I find it irresistible.
However whereas most idea vehicles are wheeled out at auto reveals or in on-line galleries for us to merely ogle at longingly, Cupra has taken a special tact with the Darkish Insurgent. No, it isn’t going to place it into manufacturing, as an alternative it’s made a configuration device for the idea so you’ll be able to design your individual imaginary automobile.
Known as the Hyper Configurator, the device allows you to customise the Darkish Insurgent to your liking. Daft names apart, the configurator is fairly enjoyable to play with. For 3 minutes, it allows you to tweak the outside particulars of the automobile by creating your individual colours, supplies, and finishes.
You’ll be able to attempt the Hyper Configurator out for your self proper right here.
When you’re completely happy together with your design, you’ll be able to then “notice” it, and Cupra gives you a bit video of the completed idea to treasure. That method, you’ll be able to maintain onto your imaginary automobile ‘until the top of days, or till your laptop dies. Whichever comes first, I suppose.
However what do you consider the Darkish Insurgent, is it the taking pictures brake Supra that all of us deserve, or simply one other meaningless idea? And, would you want extra automakers to allow you to experiment with their idea designs?
