Breadvan_update_062: hood scoop design
Hood scoop design proposals
Last week we shared a selection of different iterations for the coachbuilt Breadvan Hommage hood scoop. Today another selection of different proposals for the owner of the car to review. These are shaped rather radically. Last week were more tuned down ideas. As a result, these are bigger, whilst also the aesthetics are more outspoken. They take a large surface of the bonnet. The bonnet scoop on the first proposal features more square shapes. The dome is similar in shape compared to the nostrils. No openings in the front of this design. This rectangular shaped hood scoop is visually sunk into the hood. A small faceted edge defines the shape. It continues to the windshield, where warm air can escape. The chamfer and V-shape corresponds with the general bonnet volume.

The second proposal is a special dome. This basically is an air scoop. Similar to many sportcars. This is there to take in air and cool down the engine. Alternatively the air can be fed into the engine. This design is soft and the more subtle version of those shown today. In the front of the dome the intake hole can be seen. This features the same shapes, volumes and even mesh will be used in the grille of the Breadvan Hommage. It will also be seen in the nostrils and the air vents on the wings of the car and the rear fenders. Consistency in design means similar shapes, volumes, lines and materials for details. The unique feature of this air intake obviously is its see-through effect. The best of both worlds: a very special design feature both visually and technically fitting.

The third option shown today is a square shaped hood scoop. This does not extend to the windscreen. Two cooling holes on the left and right in the dome can be seen. These are a reference to the original car. Bold and outspoken in its design, these two holes are larger at the front compared to the back. The overall shape is made linking to famous race cars and heritage models. All three ideas above link to the actual possibilities. This means the OEM bonnet structure will be used. This can be seen on the fourth and last image. As we are using this, all designs will have to fit within this shape. Working like this means the car does not need a completely newly designed and engineered bonnet. The looks will be completely different to the OEM base vehicle, whilst keeping its technical rigidity.
