Vizualtech Depicts the Future of Hot Rodding

Vizualtech, a Swedish design and engineering firm whose forte is constructing virtual 3D models of cars and boats, has decided to try their hand at the future of hot rodding, and the results are pretty awesome.image


The result is a rendering of the Delithium, a drop-top speedster designed to run on all-electric power or a highly efficient petrol-electric hybrid system. Something eco-friendly, anyway. This is the future, mind you.

The name Delithium is a clever play on the words “delirium” and “lithium” and as indicated by this name the vehicle is capable of drunkeningly quick speeds powered by laptop batteries.

The simple interior of the Delithium is a combination of function and styling refinement. A digital display provides information about the car’s electric drive system, while the driver has full control of the powertrain thanks to a seven-speed paddle-shift operated gearbox.

The powertrain can either be lithium-ion powered electric motor with more than 390hp (290kW) and 373lb-ft (470Nm) of torque on tap, or a petrol V8 mated to a compact electric motor in a hybrid configuration. Or you could just slap a virtual blown LS3 in there and skip the “green.” Either way, Vizualtech predicts its hot rod would be capable of top speeds in excess of 280km/h and 0-100km/h sprint times below four seconds.
