Due to be revealed later this year, the supercar’s design – with a “petal-roof” and hinging doors – will be based on Singapore’s national flower, the vanda orchid.

A concept car was initially created in March by Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE), who took sketches of the D-1 and brought it to life.

This car was then powered by a single motor and a lithium ion battery pack, modelled from the Formula E set-up that WAE designed for its race series.

When the D-1 – which is reported to have a seven-figure price tag – is built however, the company plan to power the vehicle by solid-state batteries.
