“Two different aerodynamic styling packages will be available and the standard “Low Wing” variant is designed to deliver the highest top speed.

The optional ZTK Performance Package goes even further as it adds a front splitter and an adjustable “High Wing” that provides an estimated 950 pounds of downforce. The package also includes Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 summer tires, chassis modifications, and a retuned Magnetic Ride Control system that promises to deliver even greater cornering grip,” reports Car Scoops.
