Join the Petersen and DriveH2.org (brought to you by Energy Independence Now) for an exclusive auction of the United Nude Lo Res Car.
The bespoke, four-wheeled wedge known as “The Lo Res Car” is a fully functional representation of a Lamborghini Countach (originally designed by Marcello Gandini) that has been subject to extreme deresolution. Rem D. Koolhaas and the United Nude team applied the styling principles apparent in their other Lo Res Project to achieve the purest shape possible, which is defined by an angular steel frame fitted with smoked polycarbonate bodywork. Fully operational, the Lo Res Car does without traditional doors, requiring occupants to lift the body from the front of the vehicle for access to functional components that include a cockpit with tandem seating, a hexagonal steering wheel, and an electric drivetrain. The car was awarded a Wallpaper magazine design award in 2016 and has appeared in music videos including New Freezer by Rich the Kid featuring Kendrick Lamar.
A portion of the proceeds from the auction will benefit the Petersen Automotive Museum, helping to further their mission to preserve, present and facilitate a sustainable future. DriveH2.org is a public service initiative brought to you by Energy Independence Now (EIN), an environmental nonprofit organization that is combating climate change and air pollution by advancing hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles.
The Petersen Automotive Museum and DriveH2.org by Energy Independence Now are 501c3 non-profit organizations.
