S P I R I T T O U R E R A Rolls-Royce Shooting brake Final Major Project / Coventry University BRIEF / A car interior should be treated as a personal retreat. This project is about an electric shooting brake that explores dynamism in the longevity of the vehicle with simple geometry and configurable interior design. Spirit Tourer looks into providing users with various seating configurations.

+ With extensive development of natural environment, there is steady rise of outdoor activities such as camping trips proving an optimistic change in perception and domestic behaviour in Europe. This spawns the next of luxury travel - sustainability.

E X T E R I O R D E S I G N The concept is a fully electric shooting brake that makes use of the efficient electric powertrain to offer enhancements of interior room. With the flexibility of the interior components, the bespoke cabin offers a dynamic social space for four or an exclusive retreat for one. The rear end design emphasizes on the practical nature of the car and its travelling spirit - the tail gate finisher and tail light design indicates a compass symbol.

C E N T R A L H U B The Central hub combines an analogue clock and infotainment control to optimize the assets on the dashboard further enhancing the minimalist design.

IN THE CLOUDS

material variety is kept considerate. carbon fibre is chosen for its lightness & strength ratio to deliver a seamless continuous look while showing bmw group’s expertise in the material. white silk combined with the softness of the cushions is delicate to the touch to ease user to complete comfort & relaxation. two ergonomically design brushed copper dials control the overhead lighting system & add highlights to user’s usability as well as detailing.

the large cushions are carefully divided into four main articles for an optimum removal of lines leaving an easy welcoming environment. the slight curvature of the base gently pulls the users towards each other for better engagement while the backrest leans backwards accordingly to stimulate the space.

SPIRIT OF ECSTASY along with the Spirit of Ecstasy engraving, the signature single coachline is also carved into the large brushed copper panel.
