A strange name for a supercar, you may be thinking. The Vanda Dendrobium is named after an orchid which is found in Singapore. The design of the car has been nature inspired, the honeycomb pattern being repeated in many aspects of the design. The roof which is rear hinged and the doors remind, in a rather dramatic manner, the petals of the orchid unfolding. The ‘Vanda Dendrobium’ is an electric supercar which can go up 200mph. The Singaporean company Vanda Electrics are the manufacturers of this hypercar. Read on to find out some more cool details about the Dendrobium:
