Under the hood sits a 4.-litre twin-turbo V8 with a flat crankshaft which indicates it is associated to the monster found in the array-topping road auto acknowledged as the GT Black Collection. In this specification, the motor pumps out 707 horses (520 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) which is a great deal thinking about it’s stripped out and a great deal lighter than the Black Series.

Electrical power is despatched to the rear wheels many thanks to a sequential six-pace racing transmission with an adjustable self-locking differential.

Bodyweight is down to 1,400 kg and that consists of the air conditioning program.

As you can see it relies greatly on aerodynamics to continue to keep it glued to the tarmac. The significant rear wing has been designed from the floor up and can be modified.
