Helix is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2023
Throughout the year we will be looking backwards and forwards. Gaining inspiration from a quarter century’s heritage of horsepower, hybrids and hypercars.
Back in time to celebrate
Hold tight, let’s go back in time. Where actually were you in 1998? Yes 25 years ago. It was the year Europe adopted the Euro, the movie Titanic came out and we saw the launch of Apple’s iMac. Remember them? I had a blue one. It was the year US President Bill Clinton was impeached and Google was founded.
Nostalgia is not what it used to be
How much, or maybe how little do you think the world has changed since 1998? You might remember General Motors streamlined, retro-influenced EV1 electric car had been launched just two years previously as a result of California’s visionary trading laws. And finally for now, BMW bought Rolls Royce cars.
1998 was also the year four engineers who met working at Cosworth Technology road engine business set out on their own with the launch of a new fledgling powertrain consultancy business. This was to go on to become the Helix of today.
Now back in 2023 we look to the future and a new era of manufacturing as we ramp up series production of our motor and inverter products for diversified high performance applications. The next 25 years will see us providing our Scalable Core Technology for clients’ exciting new vehicles, at sea and in the air. Where we’re going you don’t need roads.
