Singapore’s first-ever hypercar, the Dendrobium, will make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month. In case you are wondering, yes, it is named after an orchid native to Singapore.
Not much detail has been revealed with the teaser photos at this stage, except that it is a high-performance two-seater electric hypercar made by Singapore’s electric mobility company, Vanda Electrics.
The Dendrobium’s high-tech componentry will be wrapped in a dramatic supercar body featuring an automatic roof and doors, which open in a synchronized, theatrical manner, resembling a fully-opened dendrobium flower.
The interior of the car is said to come with the finest Scottish leather from Bridge of Weir Leather Company, which sources the best hides from the best heritage breeds. Vanda says the result is the lowest carbon tannery and leather product in the world.
To help develop the hypercar, Vanda Electrics has partnered with Williams Advanced Engineering, the outfit specialising in race-bred, aerodynamics, composites, batteries and electric drivetrains, which also includes Williams Martini Racing.
