Aerodynamics and Safety
To achieve such unprecedented levels of aerodynamic efficiency, the Hyper GT comes with Wind Blade Grille that opens automatically when it reaches 80 km/h leading to enhanced airflow generating downforce. This has a direct impact on the handling and steering feedback, especially while cornering. Moreover, there are flush-fitting door handles, butterfly doors and 19-inch six-spoke alloy wheels.
In terms of safety, the EV comes with high-tech sensors for cameras, LiDAR, radars and Fengyun lll Satellite Infrared Remote Sensing Technology. The hardware for the same is set within the roof, mirrors, front bumper and fenders. More details will be available closer to the launch.
