A ‘Woody’ for tomorrow, because legends should not be forgotten, nor ignored. The very nature of woodgrain makes it the perfect compliment for individualized luxurious automotive creations, reminding us of the bespoke coachbuilding masters of the past.

The Hydra concept is not only special because of its choice of exclusive natural materials but because of the company that it keeps. It makes up a third of the Hydra Collection from Gray Design, a trio of exclusive matching vehicles, designed to appeal to the obsessive compulsive tendencies of the world's leading vehicle collectors.

Alongside it in the collection are the Hydrafoil, a high speed, open top hydrofoil, and the Hydros, an electric cruising motorcycle with matching wooden trim and automotive styling.

As the car is developed in Trollhättan, the powertrain will be based on the new NEVS electrical drive system which will be tuned to develop 450 hp through in-wheel electric motors and allow the Hydra to reach a limited top speed of 215 kph.
