The ESC project was born out of a desire to create a super car aesthetic for electric powered vehicles.
The ESC (Electric Super Car) concept is the work of two graduates from Coventry University's Transport Design Course. Mark Przeslawski and Hanan Qattan created the concept as part of their final year projects. Przeslawski was responsible for the exterior styling, while Qattan took care of the interior design.

The ESC project was born out of a desire to create a super car aesthetic for electric powered vehicles. The design of the ESC takes into account the fact that one of the underlining principles of supercar design - a loud, raucous engine - is replaced by an almost completely silent, but equally potent power source. The organic, fluid bodywork is designed to highlight the environmentally friendly drivetrain while also improving the performance thanks to the aerodynamic shape.

Przeslawski says of the ESC. "Aesthetically the vehicle is not loud and aggressive like super cars as we know them today, the surface language of the ESC is silent, pure and sculpturally embodies the driver." While explaining how the bodywork enhances the ESC's handling he explains. "The innovative 'wings' protrude from within the organic shell to actively give the vehicle down-force/lift to obtain maximum speed both through corners and on the flats."

The single-seat interior of the ESC is unlike any other vehicle and features an entirely unique way to encapsulate the driver. The concept features an innovative 'bionic weave' structure developed by Hanan Qattan. This structure not only holds the driver in place, but also doubles up as the chassis and safety device which runs throughout the entire length of the vehicle. The weave itself is not just a passive styling feature, the structure moves and tightens around the driver to hold them in place during extreme cornering, this is designed to enhance the sensation of driving and aid performance.

The exterior and interior scale models were awarded 'Best in Show' at the graduation show. The ESC will also be appearing at 'New Designers' - a major design event held in London displaying the latest in cutting edge green design.
