This concept car is designed with dimensions of length 4,731 mm, width 2,000 mm and height 895 mm. While its front tires uses a 315/30-R21 profile and a 355/25-R21 for rear one.
Unfortunately, there's no further technical details were offered. It makes sense, due to the car on display just a physical model, not a real car that can be driven. *** [FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | LEISURIAN | MIKESHOUTS ]
