Developed by Vazirani Automotive, the Shul is a hypercar powered by a turbine-electric powertrain and makes its debut as a concept at 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
India can now claim to be a hypercar maker as well as Europe and the US. Vazirani Automotive has unveiled the Vazirani Shul turbine-electric hypercar at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The Shul is in the conceptual stage and testing the prototype will be later this year. Vazirani Automotive is headed by designer and co-founder Chunky Vazirani, who has worked closely with the Sahara Force India Formula 1 team and Michelin tires in the development of its new electric hypercar.
Vazirani Shul is powered by a jet turbine engine that feeds from a four electric motor set-up.
The Vazirani Shul looks stunning with a design that has been influenced by the wind tunnel, and is reminiscent of the Pininfarina H2 Speed Concept. It is the powertrain that sets itself apart from others. Each of the four electric motors are located beside the wheel to provide fully independent torque vectoring. The hypercar promises rapid acceleration with torque-heavy performance without compromising on range. The car has been developed in collaboration with a company in the UK for the development of its turbines. The turbine-electric motor is paired to a single ratio transmission, similar to the Koenigsegg Regera. Vazirani says the motor layout allows drivers to use regular gas.
Vazirani has revealed that the Shul hypercar is underpinned by a carbon-fibre tub chassis similar to that of the BMW i8, which helps keep the structural rigidity high, without having to compromise on weight. In fact, the Shul uses carbon fibre extensively in its construction to keep the weight low. The battery pack is about 300 kg and can be charged on the go with regenerative technology.
Complete technical details on the Vazirani Shul are yet to be revealed, and so are the performance numbers. The company says it is focusing on handling with sportscar like responses, while braking performance comes from Brembo.
Vazirani Automotive co-founder, Chunky Vazirani, has previously worked with Jaguar and Land Rover as well as Rolls-Royce. The company finds its roots in India, even though it’s almost entirely designed at the automaker’s studio in California, US, and it is also likely to be manufactured in California once it goes into production.
