“I’m not a race car expert, I can’t drive one, but I know a lot of people who are. I’ve played a number of them, and I don’t know anything about the actual operation. I can only tell you that the engine is two and a half to three horsepower too light [laughs], so it’s not that much more than you’d expect for the weight. You’d want the weight to be an awful lot less than 2,500 pound, not much more like 2,700. So what would you say the design process would be?
“Would you give it a very aggressive exterior?”
“Yeah… No, no, no. Maybe a bit more. I think it would be too much. It’s too aggressive.”
[Laughs] “It is aggressive. I’d probably give it an even more aggressive look. A body, so… A body that’s a bit more sporty, with a very bold front and rear. I don’t really go for those looking for a more subtle ride-by-wire drivetrain, so there might be a bit of a compromise there.”
On the car’s performance limitations:
“We thought that that [small engine] was much too weak. And they put in a big turbocharger, so they’re able to go a lot faster. But they could have done it a bit faster, but [the car was too] light for the car. It’s kind of overstressed and the engine is getting too weak.”
What kinds of improvements to the car are possible? “You’d need new bodywork to give them more aerodynamic power, I think. The biggest things are suspension, brakes. Aero – there’s the new front and rear. I think they could get a good deal better, though I’m not that convinced. That’s probably the biggest problem with the car on track. You just can’t be very aggressive at the track.”
And that is the end of the interview. Do you have plans for the car’s future? Or, is this the end of the story?
“That’s the question at this point – the ultimate story – but you know I would never say never. No, it’s hard to say at this point, as you know. But I think I’d like to have a small team working on a car, with some of that same sort of personality that went into the Bugatti V
