“The inspiration came from a number of factors,” Lee explained. “Until a few years ago, Case saw design as being exclusively linked to functionality. Then we realized that the aesthetic factor was also important. Our symbol, the eagle, is what best represents the philosophy of our vehicles. It is an agile, aggressive, intelligent and efficient animal. Project Tetra has the same DNA. Having clarified this, I identified a series of fixed points, in sketch after sketch; like the pieces of a puzzle, these points allowed me to define the main characteristics. The eagle also inspired the shape. The vehicle does not need to be aerodynamic, but it has a dynamic silhouette”.
