The extreme, aerodynamic look, that takes inspiration from the brand’s DNA as well as from jet fighters, use a combination of basic, raw shapes that recalls the essential shapes of actual race cars.

Automotive designer Adán López Ortiz explains: “The main cue was also to make the driver feel as exposed to the road and mechanical roughness as possible. I dream it to have a cockpit where you can see the road, the push rod suspension, and the disk brakes ( getting red by hard decelerations) to give you as a driver a very unique experience with the road.”

At the front, the entire nose serves as a large wing connecting the car’s fenders. The windshield extends down to the front suspension area, leaving the racing shock absorbers and the steering system fully visible.

The side view is characterized by a X-shaped design, with an interplay of intersecting elements that leaves exposed the hollow channel running from the front end to the rear wheels, underlined by the contrasting color.

Among the distinctive design elements are the sideview mirrors, which are positioned above the front wheels, pointing inwards.
