Exterior Inspiration

Visually Orion should look capable and strong in order to reveal its intent. The use of layering proved to give off an impression of strength, much like a Knights Armour. Inspiration also came from the experience of discovering hidden details within these layers, much like finding a hidden logo in the surface layering of a BMW I8. Capability and speed go hand in hand but how do we capture the essence of it? Research into the posture of a crouched cheetah just before exploding with lighting speed revealed a leaning wedge shape, which went on to inspire the leaning superstructure of Orion.
