Based on the concept of power, leading to visual thinking this automobile, making a fortress really aesthetic. Part of this study was taken from elements of nature such as animals, specifically in Harpy (Hawk-Real) Harpy harpyja.
"Harpy" is a reference to be of Greek mythology. Because of the size and ferocity of the animal, the first European explorers in Central America named these eagles according to the monstrous half-woman / half eagles of classical Greek mythology.
"Hawk-de-plume" and "harpy eagle" are references to the plume head characteristic of the species, with a format similar to a crown. "Uiruuetê" is a term that contains the Tupi e'tê term, "true". "Uiraçu" came from the Tupi word for "large bird."
