Shayton Equilibrium (Hypercar) by Andrej Stanta
2012 - 2013, Platinum A' Vehicle, Mobility and Transportation Design Award Winner
My vision of Shayton Equilibrium comes from pure emotions, from perfect balance of energies and forces within myslef and inspiration coming from watching perfect summer storm, admiring elegance of falcon ( shayton ) in flight and to feel pureness of a natural pearl in my hands. Without function Shayton would be just another piece of art to put into the gallery. Therefore two worlds, art and engineering, are to clash together at one point to make absolute perfection – equilibrium - The condition in which all competing influences are perfectly balanced.
Shayton Equilibrium represents pure hedonism, an abstract concept to most people and realization of dreams to lucky few. It represents ultimate pleasure, a new perception of driving, where the goal is not as important as the experience. Shayton is set to go beyond known, to test new materials and alternative green propultions that could enhance the performance while preserving environemnt and pedigree of the car. Shayton is art and machine in one, the object of affection and test ground to test the limits of synergy between man and the machine.
Design Challenges
Designing such car is pure pleasure and joy but to bring it to reality and make it function presents me with exciting challenge. I see project to bring together individuals with various expertises to help achive the ultimate goal. Challenge? To prove that hard work, selfinitiative, passion and stamina turn dreams/visions to reality.
Production Technology
Shayton is planed to be build as prototype first. To test the materials and technology. Chassis will at first consist Of chrome-molybdenum space frame, with central carbon fibre integral cell and carbon fibre front box to absorb front crash energy. Later on carbone-monocoque is planned. Mid positioned V8 engine with Bi-turbos will provide 1000-1200 bhp and 1200 Nm of torque via rear wheels and sequential paddle shift twin-clutch 7 speed gearbox. Assisting electric engines at front wheels, to be used in cities and as additional power source, are planned as well.
