As for the technical equipment, the hyper car will be supplied by 1.6-liter turbo V6 and a hybrid drive. Unlike with Formula car the top coupe will get electric motors on the front axle, full controlled chassis with a torque vectoring system. It sounds strange to install an engine into a road model destined for a couple of races. It will work due to the larger motor capacity and another turbocharger as well as a cooling system. The top speed will lead 350 km/h; the acceleration will take 2.5 seconds. The curb weigh will make 1000-1300 kg.
