CUPRA has unveiled today the final version of the CUPRA e-Racer, the electric Touring Car that has been developed by the Spanish manufacturer in compliance with the ETCR technical regulations.
“CUPRA has always had a pioneering role in motorsport and with the CUPRA e-Racer we are continuing to break new ground. It has been developed specifically to meet ETCR technical regulations and requirements,” said CUPRA Racing director Jaime Puig.
The CUPRA e-Racer provides a combined 680bHp or 500kW of peak power and 960Nm of torque from its single-speed four electric motors and a liquid cooled 65kWh battery pack.
Aerodynamics, performance and design have sculpted the shape of the CUPRA e-Racer, starting with its lower and wider stance, carrying over the road car side air curtains and introducing an innovative bumper and bonnet air flow circulation.
As a pure electric vehicle, the combustion engine grille was eliminated and replaced by an air curtain bonnet, improving aerodynamics performance. The wheel arches have been developed to better extract the air and improve downforce, while the floor underneath helps improve overall aerodynamics. Each part of the car’s design is about air flow.
