Deep, angular shaping on the hood and profile, as well as a low, flattened-out stance, large rear spoiler and giant fan-blade wheels round out the race-ready cues. That theme continues none too subtly on the inside, where it takes on the appearance of a jet-fighter cockpit, featuring full-on racecar seats, an airplane steering yoke and seat belt, and a nearly shoulder-high divide between driver and passenger where the console would otherwise be.
