The Eadon Green Zeclat was one of the quirkiest machines at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. With its striking body and paint job, the Zeclat is a vehicle that manages to draw attention away from some of the fastest and most expensive supercars, though not necessarily for the right reasons, as it looks very, well, weird.
Road & Track got to sit down with Felix Eaton, founder and CEO of Eadon Green, and got some inside info on the vehicle. For the record, this isn’t the first
abomination car we’ve seen from the brand, as it was preceded by the Black Cullin which was a Rolls-Royce-based monster with a V12 engine. The Zeclat, though, is supposed to be a major step up for the company.
Unlike the Black Cullin, which was a prototype, the Zeclat that was on display at the auto show was much closer to production. “The Black Cullin will be a one-off car for me,” said Eaton. “The Zeclat Coupe, we can produce. This is not a concept, it’s pre-production.”
In any case, Eadon Green doesn’t plan to make a lot of examples as, depending on demand, the maximum capacity is approximately 25 units a year. If the brand were to reach that number, pricing would hover around the £550,000 ($769,631) mark.
If only five consumers a year asked the company to make a Zeclat, prices would go up to £1,000,000 ($1,399,250). “In terms of pricing, it’s basically the tooling and the building costs, divided by the number of customers,” said Eaton.
A lot of details about the vehicle, then, are still up in the air. But there’s one aspect of the Corvette Grand Sport-based sports car that Eaton is sure about, and it’s the fact that the car’s exterior design will play an important role in its performance. While the Zeclat looks weird, Eaton says its aerodynamics will be spot on.
“So, we feel very confident that the aero is correct,” he said. “But before it will go into production, it will go actually to a wind tunnel as well.”
