Dihedral Doors
Access to the cabin occurs via motorized dihedral panels — a car such as this possesses wings rather than mere doors. In an effort to avoid tarnishing Evija’s sculpted exterior, there are no handles — admittance to the vehicle requires a key fob. Once inside, occupants flick a switch on the roof that closes the door panels. Carbon fiber shells enclose the individual seats, trimmed with thick Alcantara-finished pads. Three-point safety belts are much-needed standard equipment, with the option of a 4-point harness when things get serious. Two small storage areas are integrated within the bodyshell.
