Callum Skye

Nope, not the name of the newest pop star but the newest creation of a very well known car designer.

Ian Callum, heard of him? No?

What do all of these cars have in common? Jaguar F Type, Aston Martin DB7, DB9 and Vanquish, Ford Escort Cosworth, Ford RS200, Nissan R390 and Jaguar CX-75. They were all designed by legendary car designer Ian Callum. And now after working with many car brands he has started his own.

Named after himself. The marque Callum has launched it’s very own high performance EV, the Skye. It’s an EV beach buggy of sorts with seriously futuristic looks. This week we got to see the car for the first time.

Designed for both off-road and on. The Skye can hit 60 from a standstill in just 4 seconds and weighs just 1150kg. 2+2 seating looks a little cosy in the back but really this is a car designed for 2 people. The interior is simple yet futuristic, featuring a sparse number of controls.

Starting from £80k it’s not cheap but it’s definitely different.
