Factory FiveIn full consideration of the next 818, Factory Five has unveiled the results of the contest design . The work of the winner may well inspire the outline of the future cut.

For several months, Factory Five is working on his next project sports coupe: the 818. The brand wants to include an original design. To this end, the leaders had opened some time ago a contest co-sponsored by Grassroots Motorsports.

The rules were clear: design a two-seater sports car with a mid-engine, two wheels, a wheelbase of 95 inches maximum (241 cm), a manufacturing cost of less than 10,500 euros and a weight of 818 kg (of where the model name …).

Factory Five has just given the results of the competition. And, in this game, the best was a designer named Nouphone Bansasi, ranked ahead of Rodney Olmos and Xavier Albizu. The winner won a premium of approximately 3500 euros and above all the sketches from his cut red may well inspire the final design of the next 818. Given the visible images below (with drawings of the first three), it could give a result more interesting.

According to Factory Five, the model should be launched in late 2012 or early 2013.Factory Five
