CEO’s LIST OF DEMANDS:
Challenge Overview:Design Silver-York’s 120th Anniversary Edition concept car - an art-deco/retro twist on modern Silver-York designs, inspired by the Teleiótita.
(Not a modern twist on a retro Silver-York – so no retro moderns!).
Be creative, come up with a name for the design. It is a modern Teleiótita, but it’s not a Teleiótita so be spicy and creative.
Judgement will be based on the following categories:
• Overall Design
• Continuity with modern Silver-York designs
• Spiritual embodiment of the original Teleiótita (including incorporation of art deco design elements)
• Exclusivity (how much it stands out as a super luxury vehicle, and how much it stands out from the rest of the Silver-York catalogue)
This is a 120th anniversary concept car, so it’s not to be put into production; Silver-York are after a design and a design only. However, MUSTs of engineering are engine placement (front or mid) this is more to determine body type than anything else, and the car and trim year must be set as 2020.
This is a spiritual successor to the Teleiótita, a car that embodied the meaning of the word Teleiótita, aka perfection. The Teleiótita was and is a Super GT of its era: 2 doors, long bonnet/hood, with its design (images shown below). This new design must embody this (further details discussed below).
The design is to be a super GT, performance but also comfort (think Bugatti Chiron), ideally the car would be capable of comfortably cruising at 200MPH (again this isn’t something that has to be done since it’s a design challenge but gives you an idea of the type of vehicle we are after).
Embodiment of Teleiótita: with this being a embodiment of the original design it’s less about making it look like a modern version and more about incorporating the ideas and elements behind it (both design and what the Teleiótita was: a luxurious, superfast car of the era with design at its heart). It doesn’t have to be a long bonneted front engine GT it can be a mid-engine ‘modern’ idea of what the Teleiótita was (a good example of this is how the Bugatti La Voiture Noire is a spiritual successor to the T57 – see images).
Design is of course going to be key in this brief, since that’s what will be being judged! The design is all about finding a balance between several factors… Does it embody Silver-York and the past, present and the future of its design? This is a concept showcasing what Silver-York has done over the last 120 years but also what Silver-York can continue to bring for the next 120 years and beyond. It should be both a vision concept but also a historic concept.
A badge isn’t required to be placed upon the vehicle, but you can recreate the iconic Silver-York eagle if you so desire. (3 simple triangles can be used to replicate this)
OPTIONAL: in addition to all the other standard tasks but not a necessity, we would appreciate any lore in regards to design (why elements were choosen, how it relates to Silver-York etc. These may be helpful in me judging the car since it may explain certain choices etc. Although again this won’t directly score). And for any one wishing to create any art work we would massively appreciate this.
- Design is to be set as 2020.
- Engine placement must be front or mid / though this is a design only challenge but Engine placement will have a significant impact on the body and it’s design.
- Body styles musts be either a coupe/convertible or a sedan/saloon.
- 2 or 4 seats
- Naming scheme will follow standard practice (SYR [Username] – Trim [Insert your design name] for the car and engine: SYR- [Username] )
