Under the sports car’s hood sits 10 air-cooled heat exchangers to cool the front twin-motor unit, twin-turbo V6 engine, rear direct-drive electric motor and nine-speed dual-clutch transmission. Three radiators (one centre and two side units) cool the 3.5-litre V6 engine to achieve maximum efficiency and airflow volume.
