Detroit Electric SP:01 design finalised

Detroit Electric has finalised the exterior styling of its SP:01 electric-powered sports car, which is set to enter production later this year.

Compared to the prototype, the main difference is the adoption of a more aerodynamic fastback rear window instead of separate flying buttresses.

Other changes include reshaped air intakes and bonnet ducts at the front. The back end meanwhile gains both a spoiler and a diffuser to increase downforce. There’s still no mistaking the SP:01’s obvious Lotus roots, though.

Performance should be impressive, as Detroit Electric is promising a 0-60 mph (96 km/h) time of 3.7 seconds and a 155 mph (249 km/h) top speed. However, range and recharging times have yet to be revealed.

Sales of the SP:01 are due to begin sometime during 2015.
