A prototype of the upcoming Polyester 5 is set to make its dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The production version of the 2020 concept concept has been officially previewed by Sketch and Rendering, but this is the first time a life-size prototype has been shown to the public, before its market launch in 2024.
The announcement was made by a photo gallery of a disguised prototype in action. The test vehicle is covered with a white and gray wrapper and body cover but the soft curves of the final product can be easily distinguished. However, it clearly doesn’t wear production lighting units and has bolts on the front bumper that show it’s still a work in progress.

In addition to the external shots, we also see the prototype dashboard. Like the exterior, it’s not completely finished, with missing upholstery and exposed elements. Still, it gives us a nice idea of the interior design of the Polyester 5, revealing the brand new steering wheel, high-mounted center tunnel and digital cockpit with a free-standing digital instrument cluster and a large infotainment touchscreen in the portrait.

The prototype will compete on several drives up the hill, and then it will be placed on the paddock at first glance so that visitors can see it more closely. Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polyester, said: “Goodwood is our favorite place to show off our cars in a vibrant environment. This year, we are thrilled to showcase Polyester 5! Our UK R&D team is doing an amazing job developing cars, and we are proud to showcase their hard work at this early stage. “
The production design of the Polyester 5 was recently leaked in a patent image, confirming what we already know from the official teaser. The four-door GT will have an aerodynamic silhouette with split LED headlights, full-width taillights and clear surfacing. Polyester 5 will be based on a bonded aluminum platform developed by Polyester’s R&D team in Coventry, UK. According to Polyester, the Bespoke architecture allows the white-body to weigh less than a smaller car, but at the same time, it will have higher torsional rigidity than a two-seater sports car or supercar.
In addition to the Polyester 5 prototype, the Swedish Automaker’s original concept concept, the recently released O2 Roadstar Concept and Polyester 2, as well as the performance-centric Polyester 2 BST version 270 will be on display.
