Vazirani Shul_Inspire GT
Flying the flag at Goodwood was Vazirani Automotive, with their concept electric hypercar. The new car sports a turbine-electric hybrid drivetrain. Conceived in India, the car was built in California, because the electric-car support infrastructure has been established long ago.
The brainchild of chief designer Chunky Vazirani, Vazirani Automotive was founded in 2015 with the sole mission of putting India on the supercar map. Their first concept is a high-performance electric hypercar that integrates a micro-turbine range extender with a light-weight battery pack, a format that hasn’t been seen before. The micro-turbine works as an onboard generator to charge the batteries and, when running, also adds an aural element to the electric car experience — something that is sorely missed in modern electric cars.
