Drive is sent to all four wheels by a seven-speed sequential transmission.”
Body work is all carbon fiber. Inside, there’s a Tesla-like 16-inch touchscreen.
As for the electric version, this is what’s being stated:
“Pointing towards a future family of Streamliner models, company boss Kevin Lyons says all-wheel-drive electric and Super Sport GT versions of the car are already in development.”
