One of the dual engines drives the front wheels while the other drives the rear. Each engine is rev-limited to 3800 rpm.

As the size of the car prohibited meaningful wind tunnel testing, the streamlined shape of the car was refined entirely though the use of computational fluid dynamics by MIRA Ltd, which has enabled the car to obtain a very low coefficient of drag of only 0.147 and a C<sub>d</sub>A value (drag coefficient &times; frontal area) of only 0.129&nbsp;m². The fuel tank, which holds only 9&nbsp;liters (2.38&nbsp;U.S. gallons), is located directly behind the carbon fiber cockpit.
