9.10.13 (via Autosport.com) – Formula E has unveiled the car that will be used for its inaugural championship in 2014.
The Spark-Renault SRT_01E was officially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show on Tuesday.
Formula E Holdings CEO Alejandro Agag and FIA president Jean Todt pulled the covers back on the first version of the actual race-specification car that will be used for the first series.
The SRT_01E has been developed and built by some of the sport's biggest names, with Spark Racing Technologies – led by ART's Frederic Vasseur – having been supported by Dallara (chassis), McLaren Electronic Systems (powertrain), Williams Advanced Engineering (batteries), and Hewland (gearbox).
The car will run on bespoke Michelin tyres, which will be mounted on 18 inch rims.
