The engine can be combined with a seven-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission.
From zero to 69 kilometers per hour the coupe is able to accelerate in 3.6 seconds.

Zeclat equipment includes carbon-ceramic brakes Brembo, adaptive shock absorbers with magnetorheological fluid, as well as a system for changing the operation of the control electronics with five modes: all-weather, economical, comfortable, sports and track.

For Zeclat is available 18 options for painting the body and 13 color schemes of the interior.

Zeclat became the second car in the company’s lineup. Previously, the studio presented a reto sports car Black Cuillin, inspired by the luxurious grant-tourers of the past. The car was equipped with a 6.0-liter V12 engine and a modern infotainment system.
