About The Black Cuillin

The BLACK CUILLIN, or project “FE57” as it started out, was to explore the idea of a romantic Grand Tourer of 1930s style in a collection of 2D sketches and visuals, considering the interior and exterior themes as well as the type of car it should be. I was originally inspired by an Alfa 8C 2900 convertible but my main passion has always been the Coupe, so a Coupe body was decided upon.

Refined, Elegant, Powerful

Refined, elegant, powerful, quiet, exclusive and luxury were all words used when discussing the project. This led to the need for a large, imposing machine of the very highest quality, evoking the romance and financial power of the people who drove such machines across Europe at a time when such journeys seemed impossibly daring!

Discerning Drivers

A detailed analysis was undertaken to identify a modern chassis and power train that would satisfy a discerning driver of the 21st century. In addition, only the best materials would suffice for an Eadon Green car, and an aluminium coach built body was specified. Building upon these two essential foundation stones, the detail of the design followed, incorporating engineering excellence into the already well developed body drawings until the design was agreed and passed for 3D creation.

Production Ready

With the detailed drawings in place, Eadon Green moved into the final phase, creating and checking proportions in 3D CAD, ensuring that every area, from perfection in each line, surface and interface, to the interior ergonomics, had been made production ready.

Vision Model

Cars exist very happily inside a computer, with the most amazing 3D tools at our disposal to view realistic, rendered images that look very convincing and difficult to tell apart from a photograph. Despite this technology, there is no substitute for seeing a new creation in the flesh. Eadon Green believes that, once the 3D CAD design is considered complete, the first step towards production is to manufacture a full scale Vision Model that can occupy its space in exactly the same proportion as a showroom production car.

Geneva

The Vision Model launch of The BLACK CUILLIN, at Geneva 2017, puts Eadon Green, and its philosophy of creating beautifully designed and well- engineered cars, into the world’s spotlight. We look forward to hearing the world’s opinion.
