The complex work of art was created in just 10 hours. Although this is the only Cooper SE of its kind for the famous superhero, it will never appear on the big screen.

In honor of the 80th anniversary of the hero of “Flash”, the famous artist Carmine Di Giandomenico, who drew 34 issues of the comic book of the same name, has modified the appearance of the electric car Mini Cooper SE. The unique “superhero” art car was presented at the online event Lucca Changes 2020, dedicated to comics, games, animation and fantasy.

The design of Cooper SE is a rethinking of the cover of the 123rd issue, drawn by Carmine Infantino, combining the classic version of Jay Garrick’s “Flash” and the modern version of Barry Allen. As on the original cover of the comic, “Central City” is in the background, and flashes of lightning adorn the front and sides. On the one hand, the electric car is a classic superhero, and on the other – a modern interpretation of the character.

Surprisingly, it took only 10 hours to create an intricate design using “mixed media”. On the other hand, this is not surprising, given that in 2016 the artist painted 56 comic book plates in 48 hours, for which he received the nickname “the fastest cartoonist in the world.”

Although the Flash itself is known for its speed exceeding the speed of light, the performance of the Mini Cooper SE is less impressive. The electric motor produces 181 hp. and 270 Nm of torque, which allows you to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 7.3 seconds and develop a top speed of 150 km / h. The battery provides a range of only 177 km according to the EPA rating.
