Body

Each body is hand laid by a guy with over 40 years experience in fiberglass. When people say “I gotta guy.”, and are talking about fiberglass, THIS is the guy. Part of the beauty of this model is that the actual car’s body is fiberglass. (The Corvette was made from fiberglass, because metal was still rare after WW2 rationing.) These bodies could of course be 3D printed, but the artistist expression in automotive design is hand done in clay modeling. Many auto designers say the clay allows them to spot flaws in the digital renderings. Auto body repair personnel use a keen eye and touch to do the same, especially when working with fiberglass. The lines on the C2 must be deserving of the attention, after all, “they don’t write songs about Volvos.”.
