With regards to racing...does it qualify for any official racing? Yes, it's racing at Le Mans, but only as a special favour for media attention and it`s not actually in the race because it doesn`t qualify in any category.

~630hp/tonne, apparently. That's not far off proper LMP class racing cars, so it should really shift. An Ariel Atom 3 300 has about the same power (300bhp), weighs nearly 30% more (612kg vs 475Kg) and has much more drag...and that does 0-60 in 2.9s.
I wonder how the odd wheel layout and big imbalance in tyre width affects handling, especially cornering.
I also wonder how they got the weight down to 475Kg and how much it costs to do so.
