The Indian company Vazirani Automotive presented its first model at the Festival of Speed in Goodwood, the electric hyperkar Shul. The design of the machine, which so far exists only as a full-size model, was developed in collaboration with Kazunori Yamauchi, the creator of the video game series Gran Turismo.
At the heart of Vazirani Shul is a spatial frame made of carbon fiber. Of this material, the body panels are also made. Specifications of the car are not yet reported. It is assumed that the hypercar will drive four electric motors (one for each wheel).
The power unit will also include a block of batteries with a mass of 300 kilograms and a microturbine generator. The latter is developed in the UK (the company is not called) and operates on gasoline.
According to the head of the company and at the same time its chief designer Chanki Wazirani, the hypercar is intended for “purists and petrolheds.” The engineers are faced with the task not to surprise with dynamic characteristics, but focus on controllability.
Production of the first Indian hypercar is planned in California, where the design studio Vazirani Automotive is located. The partners of the company will be Michelin and the formula team Force India. Testing the prototype Shul will begin already this year.
