The Empiria (Experience in Greek) Concept takes inspiration from classicism and excellence typical of many sportscars from the 1950’s and 1960’s. His goal was to stay away from mere retro-inspired modern reinterpretations and focus on the original core values of simplicity and essentiality. The car proportions are influenced by iconic models such as the Ferrari 250 GTO and the Jaguar E-Type.
The Empiria features a long hood with a pushed-back cabin. The front overhang is short while the rear end is characterized by streamlined, flowing lines that merge into the distinctive central element.
The graphic development of the lines was inspired by the ∞ (infinite) symbol and the whole development of the lines, from the front to the rear, is also a metaphor for the flow of time. The Empiria Concept has also another prominent graphic theme: the body surfaces are divided into two layers: the dark-tinted, front one visually extends and wraps around the underlying, white-painted surfaces of the rear section, similarly to a textile creation. These two elements also represent contrasting concepts: the front, black part made in polycarbonate expresses classicism, elegance and wisdom through its curved shapes, while the futuristic rear section conveys a sense of craziness and youth through its modern, sculpted forms.
Héctor Álvarez wanted to create an exclusive, one-off vehicle. It’s a futuristic vehicle inspired by contrast between opposites, it also pays tribute to the Spanish marque Pegasus.
