The engine heat evacuation is managed towards the sides, avoiding the negative aerodynamic impact of hot air.

The flat floor has a rear wing integrated under the car. The front grille is also shaped with blades, tuned for down force adjustment.

Similar to the Icona Fuselage concept, the integrated wings in the lower area of the wheel arches help to control the air flow and reduce air turbulence.

Interior Design

As for the exterior, the “Beauty and the Beast” complementary relationship is expressed with a performance orientated feel at first glance, while the sophisticated and refined integrated design of each element gives the interior an unforgettable signature.

The interior makes significant use of carbon fiber, giving a race-inspired feel while fully adjustable bucket seats and other practical design features ensure total comfort for passengers on a long journey.

On the one hand, the interior is very complete and high tech: its large touchscreen provides most functions such as GPS, radio, or car diagnostics, both passengers have armrests on each side and an elegant five point seatbelt, and there are storage areas hidden behind the seats, capable of storing quite large objects such as a golf bag.

On the other hand, the interior design is driver-orientated, with very prominent visual displays on the touchscreen and no distracting unnecessary details.

The fine balance of being a dependable supercar is also reflected in the color and trim: natural saddle leather for the seats and black alcantara and carbon fiber for the rest of the interior.
