The EV maker Lucid Motors announced Monday the Stealth Look, a new version for the exterior design of the Air Grand Touring Performance, Air Grand Touring, and Air Touring models coming in the first quarter of 2023.
The theme is described by Lucid as “a darker and overtly sporting personality” and modifies 35 components on the exterior costing $6,000 in the U.S. and CAD$7,500 in Canada.
Among the most immediately visible changes, Air’s mirror caps and distinctive cantrails framing the Glass Canopy roof feature a darker Stealth finish. Elements of the lower body trim, as well as the trim around the Intelligent Micro Lens Array headlights and one-piece blade taillights also feature the new darker Stealth Satin finish, Lucid detailed.
“From its inception, Lucid Air was designed for two distinct looks that reflect the duality of its personality: standard Platinum Look, which highlights its luxurious nature; and now Stealth Look, which is simultaneously assertive yet under-the-radar,” said Derek Jenkins, SVP of Design and Brand, Lucid Group.
“Lucid Air is undeniably one of the highest-performance vehicles on the road as exemplified by the Air Grand Touring Performance, with 1,050 horsepower, which secured the title of fastest production car in the Hillclimb Timed Shootout at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. The sinister style of Stealth Look is a perfect complement.”
The company added that with this theme, “many exterior components that would otherwise be finished in platinum instead feature a dark Stealth Polished finish, reminiscent of the spéculaire black polishing technique employed in fine horology and jewelry”.
“These include the front nose blade, C-pillar flags, and lower door and fascia trim. Elsewhere, Stealth Look adds black gloss and satin graphite accents to further enhance the sharpened appearance”, the company added.
Stealth Look also includes unique wheel designs and finishes for each wheel size (wheel size availability depends on Air model variant): 21-inch Aero Sport Stealth wheels, with satin black wheel inserts and 20-inch Aero Lite Stealth wheels, with satin black wheel inserts.
