Beneath the elegant carbon fiber body panels resides an aluminium spaceframe chassis offering both extraordinary rigidity and light weight. Large wheels - 20-inch front and 21-inch rear - provide a hint of the performance capability of the Z9's 3.9-liter V8 Turbodiesel engine which delivers a stunning 413 lb-ft of torque.

The full-length gull-wing doors, which have conventional front-opening doors built in, open to reveal an interior which incorporates a masterfully simple, uncluttered driving environment. Instead of the usual array of buttons, switches and levers, the dashboard houses only the starter button and light switches. A unique control knob (with corresponding TV monitor) resides in place of the conventional shift lever operating a number of functions for both the driver and passenger.
