It has a carbon fiber monocoque chassis, carbon fiber body panels, a steel roll cage, while under the hood it hosts a V8 4.4-liter engine that has 4 valves per cylinder, unleashing 500 hp @ 7,500 rpm and a peak torque of 500 Nm. This engine is mated to a six-speed pneumatically-operated sequential gearbox and the driver can change the gear by using the paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel.
