CU concept car displayed at trade show
A six-seat sports car, engineered by Clemson students, is on display this week at an automotive trade show. The engineering work is that of students at the Clemson International Center for Automotive Research. Called Deep Orange 3, the car features a hybrid powertrain that automatically chooses front-, rear- or all-wheel-drive. It was unveiled at the Specialty Equipment Market Association Show minus its body panels. As part of the graduate auto engineering program at CU-ICAR, students are required to create and manufacture a new vehicle prototype.
