The electric and electrifying Essentia!


Drawing a fine line between being futuristic and being possible is the Genesis Essentia GT Concept, and oh boy, is it beautiful!

I don’t really know where to start with admiring the Essentia. Is it the transparent windshield that carries forward to the front, providing a fleeting look at the mechanics under the hood? Or the way it traverses backwards to provide a simply divine looking bubble roof? Or wait, it must be the way the headlight strips travel from the front to the side in an absolutely delightfully slick manner, looking thin enough to feel like highlights, but powerful enough to light up the road. It could also be the carbon monocoque body, and the way there’s no solid mass in the car, shown when the gate opens to reveal a grill-like structure instead of a closed, solid bulk. The grill detail even carries on within the car, complementing, and possibly even becoming the hero of the interior. Aside from everything I mentioned earlier, I could also be admiring the fact that this all-electric stallion could go from 0 to 60 in 3 seconds.

I don’t really know where to start with admiring the Essentia… and when I do, I’m not sure if I can stop!
