There’s no other way to describe Concorde other than iconic.

The supersonic jet shook up the aviation world when it entered service in 1976, ferry passengers across the Atlantic in just three and a half hours.

Consigned to the history books, Concorde isn’t returning for supersonic commercial aviation, but this futuristic EV pays homage to the legendary aircraft.

What you’re feasting your eyes on here is the Concorde 20+, which draws inspiration from its winged counterpart in more ways than one.

Let’s kick things off by talking about the name: Concorde 20+.

It’s evident that the name signifies the number of years since the supersonic jet’s final flight.

And, just like the aircraft’s cockpit, the EV’s cabin features rooms for three people.

There’s one seat up front for the driver or ‘pilot’, and two rear seats for the rich passenger who get to enjoy the luxury of the spacious cabin.

On the outside of Concorde 20+, there’s a host of active aero elements which not only tweak the peak performance at high speeds, but also bring a sense of fluid design to the vehicle.

At the front, there’s a pointy section with futuristic LED panel headlights, as well as windshield wrapped over the hood much like Concorde’s famous droop nose.

From the side profile renders, it’s easy to see the resemblance in shape flowing from the front to the back.

The long shooting brake design not only maximizes interior space, but also adapts the aircraft’s overall aero aesthetics.

Not that Concorde was spacious as according to those who experienced flying onboard the famous aircraft, “The plane has a claustrophobic feel to it.”

At the rear of Concorde 20+, the futuristic element is ever so present there, too.

A thin LED light bar wraps around the entire width of the rear, while the LED rear lights resemble the shape of Concorde’s turbojet engines.

Hats off the Concorde 20+’s designer, Christopher Giroux, whose shooting brake concept is exactly what the usual world of automotive concept designs needed.
