Parisian coachbuilders Joseph Figoni and Ovidio Falaschi produced this very special Delahaye 135MS Roadster for the 1937 Paris Auto Salon.
This low, sleek car appears to be moving when it is standing still. The avant-garde design caused a sensation at the Paris Auto Salon, and its completion provided Figoni & Falaschi with the opportunity to file four new patents: for the aerodynamic design that stabilized the front fenders; for the disappearing front windshield; for the special lightweight competition tubular seats; and for the disappearing convertible top.
Enessere Hercules wind generator emulates these sinuous lines with its red cedar wood blades, carbon fibre and titanium that make the rotor unique in the world just like the Delahaye 135MS Roadster.
Heads will turn when they catch a glimpse of the generator spinning or people will remain breathless just like the first time they laid eyes on a Delahaye, which looked like it was in motion whilst stationary, the Enessere Hercules is awe inspiring.

Do you have any video of that? I’d love to find out some additional information.
