Suspension – double-lever with adaptive magnetorheological shock absorbers. The equipment of the sports car includes wheels made of forged aluminum (20 inches in front and 21 rear), lifting LED headlights, a sports catalyst and exhaust. Salon will follow the designs of the customer. In the decoration will be used nappa leather, alcantara and carbon.

The price of a sports car is 615,000 euros. It takes three months to build a car.
