These are the reason for naming the car One:1,” unveiled the manufacturer.


The One:1 features new solutions to enhance track performance without compromising top speed or everyday usability, with a stunning visual appearance to go with it.

Examples of features include: unique track optimized aero winglets, extended venturi tunnels and side splitters, Le-Mans inspired active wing configuration and optimized active undertrim air management.
