Why the Versovia hybrid super luxury sedan is your mobile office, club, masseuse and more
CARS HAVE always been associated with luxury, and over the last 100 years of the automobile, automakers have striven to outdo each other in the levels of opulence of their products. Of late though, the parameters that define luxury are changing and a bespoke design house from Poland has come up with the Varsovia concept, which aims to bring entertainment, functionality and luxury under one roof.
The Varsovia’s design is inspired by a mermaid, evident from the marquee’s emblem on the bonnet, the ‘fish scale’ design on the front, sides and interiors. The designers have done away with the front passenger seat to make even more room for one of the backseat passengers. The resulting cabin is not just comfortable to ride in, but also a great ambience to enjoy some rock and roll when driven around. Interiors Plastics have been replaced by natural material s in the Varsovia’s cabin. The seats are made up of nine individual elements, with separate systems for cooling, heating, massage and regulation of hardness. They also adjust themselves automatically, not only in accordance
Plastics have been replaced by natural materials in the Varsovia’s cabin. The seats are made up of nine individual elements, with separate systems for cooling, heating, massage and regulation of hardness. They also adjust themselves automatically, not only in accordance to the occupant’s weight and build, but also depending on his emotional state through a complex system that uses pulse sensors and cameras. The Varsovia thus becomes the first car that doubles up as your personal therapist, masseuse and nanny.
The car is packed to the hilt with all the communication options you can imagine, including two 19-inch screens which, when not in use, fold up and integrate with the glass roof. The screens are 90 per cent transparent, but they can display any image, like the night sky or a cityscape. Together, these two screens make a massive 38-inch panoramic display making the Varsovia not only the ultimate mobile office, but also an entertainment powerhouse.
Under the hood
Powering it also is a series hybrid engine with drive going to the axle directly from the electric motors that are fed through batteries in the floor. The Varsovia achieves an estimated range of 350 kilometres, which goes up dramatically to 850 kilometres on a full tank of fuel with the range extender. The car is claimed to accelerate from 0-100 kmph in under five seconds, too. The Varsovia is set to go into a limited production run by 2018. Details: varsoviaconcept.com
