To gussy up the AEDC, QuimeraRR has launched a design competition that is looking for a "contemporary livery designed to showcase its unique attributes."
The AEDC will be used in a new, worldwide "non-fossil fuel-based" motorsport championship that will start in 2013. Quimera, the International Motor Sport Association and the American Le Mans Series are working together on the project for which the AEDC will be the standard-bearer. Eleven judges, including IMSA and ALMS president Scott Atherton and Formula Drift co-founder Jim Liaw, will look over the livery contest submissions, awarding the winner tickets to the car's October unveiling at the Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, CA and $5,000. If you're interested in trying your hand, you can find the details here. Contest closes May 14.
The AEDC is a successor to Quimera's all-sexy, all-electric AEGT01, which you can read about here, bonus video included. In January 2012, Quimera announced the new racing series, saying that vehicles in the drifting class could be "up to 250kW" and the series will "comply with all sanctioned safety regulations." Just so we're clear on that.
