In 2012, Espera Montbéliard students presented the Eight, a modern hot rod powered by a Maserati V8. Five years later, a new hot rod has been designed and built: the Mojave, taking its name from the Californian desert.
Retro yet modern
The Mojave's retro inspiration is reflected in its unbodied wheels, long hood, doors that open in the "wrong" direction, deeply recessed cockpit, virtually non-existent glass surface, and grille that even has a hole for a crank to start it. But there are plenty of modern details: the sharp angles, the ring-shaped headlights that give it an intriguing look, the large, wide wheels. The look is resolutely modern.
The Mojave was designed and built by 24 students from Espera Montbéliard in just 64 days.
