Vazi­rani Shul_In­spire GT

Car India - - BULLETIN -

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.
