    The Shul sits on a carbon-fibre tub chassis with a 300 kg battery pack that sits on the floor behind the driver. Notable is the subtle rear diffuser, made possible by the car's #EV packaging

    The electric motors allows it to have torque-vectoring capabilities and also the range-extender turbine allows it to have as much range as a conventionally powered car. The turbine can run on regular petrol.

    Most interesting is the Shul’s powertrain. It uses a micro turbine to charge the batteries. This feeds power to four electric motors, one on each wheel. A single ratio transmission connects the two, much like the Regera.

    The design is reminiscent of what we have come to expect form other boutique hypercar makers like Pagani and Koenigsegg, with tight lines defined by aerodynamics.
