The E-Sphyra is a prototype sportscar that will integrate new technologies to achieve maximum performance. Designed by a team of students from Belfort-Montbéliard University of Technology in France, the E-Sphyra sportscar has a fiberglass body and weighs 800 kg.

The E-Sphyra will be powered by an electric powertrain that can generate power up to 100KW. It took more than 2,000 hours for the team to construct the E-Sphyra.

Implications - Since the recent economic recession, many consumers have encountered a sense of loss control and power over their lives. Businesses that can provide products that restore that feeling of direction or empowerment will appeal to the large number of consumers today looking to exercise some authority over their own lives.
