Here's she is India's Gran Turismo hypercar

Indian car manufacturers now can not be underestimated. The cars they create continue to grow from year to year. Even recently a Mumbai-based automotive startup company named Vazirani Automotive introduced their first model of turbine electric-powered hypercar concept, called the Vazirani Shul Inspire Gran Turismo.

The Shul (pronounced 'Shool') Inspire Gran Turismo, which debuted at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed, is a new type of supercar, featuring a turbine-electric drivetrain that is designed to appeal to "purists and petrolheads". Turbine engines can notoriously run on any combustable liquid, but the Shul has been designed to run on ordinary gasoline. Four electric motors sit on each wheel to provide fully independent torque vectoring, each sending power through a single-ratio gearbox.

It is also said that this car is made and adapted to road conditions in India, such as high ground clearance, and also sold at affordable prices. And Vazirani Shul Inspire Gran Turismo is one of the implementation of the crazy idea of ​​the company's founder, Chunky Vazirani to create unusual electric vehicles and as well as can be marketed in general.

The exhibition of fast, luxury and classic cars attended by billionaires from around the world, takes place July 12 to July 15, 2018, in Goodwood, West Sussex, England. Although currently the Shul Inspire Gran Turismo is a concept model, but the company optimistic their concept will become a reality. If it does enter to the production line, Shul will apply an electric jet turbine powertrain, with a turbine that works as a generator for lightweight lithium-ion battery packs.

Vazirani said the presence of turbines allows them to use small-sized battery packs (only weigh around 300 kg), which will reduce the weight of the car and save electricity usage. The Shul body, made entirely of carbon fiber material and designed by Chunky Vazirani himself. As it is known that he is a graduate of College of Art Design in California who has worked for world's leading automotive manufacturers such as in Land Rover, Volvo, Jaguar, and Rolls-Royce.

"The proportion of the vehicle is a reflection of the packaged technology and exudes classic automotive elegance," Chunky said in a statement to the media. The location of the car's production facility has not been decided yet, but Vazirani says that California is the most likely because, "It is the capital of the world's electric car and we have many connections there. It will allow the company to offer our products elsewhere in that community," he added.

This car project also attracted other companies to join such as Michelin and even Formula 1 Force India team. Furthermore, Force India team boss Vijay Mallya revealed that Sahara Force India is the first and only Indian to enter the Formula One World Championship and with the team has reached fourth place in 2016 and 2017.
So it is very logical for him to collaborate with Vazirani Automotive to provide advice, especially with aerodynamic design and participate in important milestones in Indian automotive engineering. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | VAZIRANI AUTOMOTIVE | CARBUZZ | TOPSPEED | AUTOCAR | BLACK CARD EMOTION]
