The car we see in these images is probably the production version - it will have a fair bit of carbon fiber. here's a labeled version of the transparent body:

It has just a 10L fuel tank, but at 0.9L/100km that still is almost 900km/559m range! Do we know the battery pack capacity, and/or the all-electric range? [Edit: the MT video sez 22 miles...]

Here's the staggered seats - so they can narrow the car a bit to reduce the frontal area; and they're thin mesh seats, lighter and smaller and cooler:

It's got side video mirrors! The screen in in the shade on the door(s):

And the exhaust pipe exits into the right rear wheel well. I love the underside...

Sincerely, Neil
