The British studio Eadon Green presented its new work at the Geneva Motor Show – the four-seater coupe ZRR. As before, the designers of the company drew inspiration from the forms of cars of the 30s of the 20th century and the art deco style, but this time they took the Rolls-Royce Dawn convertible as a basis.

From the donor car Eadon Green ZRR different bodywork in retro style, although they have a few common parts. The headlights, hood, doors, windshield frame and wheels here clearly migrated from the Roll-Royce. The technology also shows no changes: the ZRR drives a 6.6-liter V12 with 601 horsepower and 840 Nm of torque. The same amount gives this unit to Dawn in the performance of Black Badge.

The maximum speed of both cars is the same – 250 kilometers per hour, but the ZRR gets a bit faster: 4.8 seconds versus 4.9 for Rolls-Royce. After replacing the folding roof with a fixed weight of the car, it practically did not change, and the length with the new body, on the contrary, grew and became almost the same as in the new “Phantom”.

In 2018, in Geneva, Eadon Green presented the Zeclat retrokup, built on a modified Chevrolet Corvette platform. Dvuhdverka received stretchers made of aluminum and carbon nanocomposite and the ideal hanging on the axes – 50:50.
