Massive use of carbon
The already mentioned bonnet, interior rear wall and diagonal braces bucket seats on the underbody for stiffening exist to reduce the weight of carbon.Â Produced also from the light material, the drive shaft, which takes over the force fit between the engine and the double-clutch transmission to the rear axle.

Inside, there is a mixture of leather and Alcantara, and the use of carbon fiber parts, all paired with subtle red pinstripes.Â The two occupants sit in extremely molded full bucket seats even at high speed and need to be afraid of losing the lateral support.
