The new car has an 1.6 liter turbo engine with 220bhp and 370Nm, which is 20bhp and 30nm more then the road version, that was prepared by Oreca, joined by a sequential gearbox from APRacing, a front mechanical locking differential, new brakes from APRacing with 320mm in the front and four piston calipers, 17-inch Speedline Corse alloy wheels and ZF-Sachs adjustable suspension. Also it has the the normal safety features like a roll-cage, bucket seats and telemetry and data acquisition.
