Despite exotic carmakers such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bugatti, Koenigsegg, McLaren and others crowding the segment, there’s always room for new entries when it comes to ultra fast cars.
Thus, there are already a few new startups looking to grab a chunk of the market, such as Bulgaria’s Alieno and, more recently, India’s Vazirani.
Founded by a California Art Center graduate with design experience at Rolls-Royce and Jaguar Land Rover, Chunky Vazirani, the company will present its first ever project, called the Shul (pronounced ‘Shool’), at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed this week, reports OverDrive.
Said to have been designed by none other than Kazunori Yamauchi, the man behind the Gran Turismo video game series, the concept (expected to hit production soon) looks like a very appealing hypercar at first glance, as per the teaser released on YouTube.
The Vazirani Shul has very sharp lines, aggressively styled panels, large air intakes and lightweight materials used in its construction, including carbon fiber.
Powering the Indian hypercar are several electric motors, aided by a compact mini-turbine range extender. Further details about the powertrain remain scarce at the moment, but in the few words used to describe it, the startup said that it delivers “a spiritual automotive experience of restrained power, eternal beauty and quiet eminence”.
Also, the addition of a turbine is said to bring a ‘signature whoosh’, thus making the entire driving experience more engaging.
