Forte is the name of an automobile, or rather, a prototype, with an aggressive look. At this point is no more than a virtual creation of design student Andrew Varnish, with no intentions of being produced, not even in a limited series. It's only a style exercise that aims at testing new ideas and poposing new solutions. After all, automobiles have always been a fertile ground for design and technological innovation.
In fact, the innovations are many and very interesting. The car's body is shaped entirely from carbon fiber and there's an ample area of windows, made from fotosensitive glass. The lights, exclusively composed of LED, are particularly creative in the brake lights, that light up progressively along a poligonal line as the intensity of the brakes grow. The sides are in tune with the car's suspension, so that the wheels aren't compromised. In addition, built in hydraulic jacks make changing wheels a quick and comfortable task.
And if the hallucinating lines of this virtual car seem to you to be innovative, you're wrong, they are actually a remake of the large American sports cars of the 1930s, such as the Cord, the Auburn, the Duesenberg or, even, this fabulous Phantom Corsair. Innovation isn't, after all, something new...
