Grant Hudson has designed the brand NEW SOLAR ELECTRIC SUNPOWER 44 Yacht and said he was inspired by others who wanted to achieve zero pollution in the ocean. Grant was first inspired by an electric remote-control car he bought when he was 7 years of age which went over 100kmph as early as the 1970’s. He said he never understood why all vehicles were not electric from that day as his research showed electric vehicle propulsion systems back as far as 1850’s. Grant studies electric propulsion systems and when solar panels arrived on the scene this sparked a new era within the vehicle and boat/yacht industry. Grant decided to take on the challenge to create the world’s first 44ft solar electric super yacht. Grant wanted to support this one step further by creating the world’s first solar electric supercar, SILENT SUPERCARS – SUPERLUMINAL.
Grant Hudson wanted to support 0 emissions 0 fuel into the air to leave behind him nothing but clean air in aid of preserving the world for his children and all those generations to come. He said other wise there will be nothing left if we continue to use fossil fuels.
Grant Hudson said over time 0 emissions in the yachting and boating industry could save our oceans and ocean life for the next generations also.
Grant Hudson has already had years’ of experience in trial and error which made many issues be able to be overcome as the growing team became an ultimate one filled with knowledge.
Now Grant has gone and done much research after designing the brand-new SOLAR ELECTRIC YACHTS SUNPOWER 44 working with aerodynamics and lightweight materials that will last and he has found ways to minimize waste. Grant has now put that same practice into the new SILENT SUPERCARS – SUPERLUMINAL.
Design: Aerodynamics was the first area in which the team have studied, second the light weight carbon fibre, 3rd the epoxy resin for strength, last the finish coat of paint.
Chassis: Has been also designed for the best layout for this supercar having the battery pack in the rear of the supercar not underneath, Grant did this for 2 reasons. 1. Most supercars have been balanced for the engine to be in the rear so it made sense. 2. It gave Grant Hudson more room below the seats so that the roof line could be in fact lower than if the batteries were laid flat on the chassis, this gave the car better aerodynamics, wind flow, and center of gravity for this silent-supercar.
Solar Roof: Grant Hudson has done much research to develop a unique custom made solar cell integration into slightly curved glass panels to give the best results for solar charge to the lithium ion battery’s at the same time keep the look of the SILENT SUPERCARS – SUPERLUMINAL. appealing to the eye as one of the most beautiful looking supercars to date in the world.
Wheels: Aerodynamic wheels and tyres have been chosen carefully with experts in their field.
In summary the dream of the first solar electric silent supercar is now on the rise ready to be built in 2020-2021 and we will start to take registers of interest and booking orders with deposit of 10% to hold a build slot which will fill the ( 44 ) Solar Electric Silent Supercars SC1 and SC11 with only ( 4 )Silent Stealth and ( 4 ) Silent-Superluminal with a total of only 52 released to the World in 2020 to secure a build slot.
