updating an icon

Essentia takes its inspiration from iconic Gran Turismo proportions, with a long bonnet and a swept-back cabin. Finished in Stardust Gray Metallic, the carbon fiber-bodied Essentia is positioned low to the ground intentionally, to make it instantly recognizable through a graceful sillhouette.


The underlying design theory behind the cabin of Essentia was to maximize the connection between car and driver. Essentia was designed to be thoroughly connected to the world around it, while providing its occupants a virtual escape.

  1. cognac leather seats

    The interior of Essentia utilizes a mixed-material aproach influenced by high fashion and classic color combinations. Cognac leather seats with chevron quilting envelops the driver and passengers in true cockpit fashion.

  2. 8-inch widescreen display

    Ahead of the driver is an 8-inch widescreen display with piano black surround. The information in the cluster includes only what is necessary for driving. The widescreen display is operated a fulfilling user experience for both driver and front passenger.
