The game of numbers doesn’t stop there either. Built to celebrate the firm’s 200 millionth car produced, the XL Sport dons some extra aero bits (nabbing a drag coefficient of just 0.258) and a resized body – both longer and wider – to account for the needed cooling and downforce of a near-170mph coupe.
In place of the electric motor, the XL Sport gets a reduction gear in its seven-speed DSG gearbox, designed to make the 11,000-rpm engine a bit more livable in its new road car body.
Structurally speaking, everything is stiffer, tightened and performance-minded.
The chassis incorporates high-strength steel subframes in addition to its carbon fiber monocoque, as well as a pullrod suspension design up front and a pushrod setup out back. Racing car type stuff.
