Gen 2 Formula E Race Car Gets Revealed
Formula E has revealed the first complete images of the second-generation car that will be used from the 2018/19 season.
The electric racer, which will bring an end to the mid-race car swaps in place since the series’ inception, is a significant departure from the original, standard single-seater design.
Its striking new look includes a ring of lighting around the FIA-mandated halo cockpit protection device, a huge rear diffuser and LMP1-inspired coverage of the front wheels.
The front and rear wings are angled more aggressively, with the remaining bodywork also much more stylised than before.
The car was revealed digitally on Tuesday ahead of a physical launched planned for the Geneva Motor Show in March.
Spark Racing Technologies won the tender to produce the car, which will be powered by a new McLaren Applied Technologies battery after the Formula 1 team’s sister company beat current battery supplier Williams Advanced Engineering to the deal.
