Lampo electric sports car coated with eco-friendly Glasurit paints

April 7, 2011

The Swiss design company Protoscar SA unveiled its Lampo 1 electric showcar in a brand new look at the 2011 International Geneva Motor Show. The color by BASF Coatings’ Glasurit that lends the Lampo its cool appearance is called Ice. The Lampo, which means lightning, was already presented in Geneva with a BASF finish back in 2009. The eco-friendly electric sports car prototype reaches speeds of 200 kilometers and has 268 PS, powered by its energy source of two lithium-ion batteries. In keeping with the energy source, Protoscar also set high standards in terms of eco-friendliness for the refinishing project, choosing Glasurit 90 Line waterborne basecoats for the “rerelease” of the Lampo 1. The waterborne paint system has a reduced solvent content and meets current VOC legislation.
