Chris Bangle has an insightful and entertaining take on modern supercar design in this video from CarDesignNews. Interviewed at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, Bangle says a lot of things about supercar design that we suspect a few insiders and afficionados have been thinking for a while. But still, if supercar produces are protecting the design status quo there’s probably a reason for that.
Anyway, Bangle says that if supercars really want to push the boundaries they should start injecting some serious design innovation into the models. If a supercar is going to be about fast, hyperbolic performance, then it should have a design to match: something which knocks your balls off, in his words. It’s a great little video and not only is it entertaining, it should give some people in the car industry something to think about.
