More specifically, the manufacturer’s wording sounds like this: it is “the cleanest, lightest and most driver-oriented supercar ever created.” It is not very clear what is meant by purity, but the mass is really impressive. The machine weighs less than a ton (986 kg). This result was achieved, among other things, thanks to the use of a carbon chassis, which, together with all panels, weighs only 150 kg. Other components were also tried to be as light as possible, and even nuts and bolts were ostensibly evaluated for weight reduction. For example, the driver’s seat weighs 7 kg, and two passenger seats (triple car) are generally only 3 kg each!

Considering that the machine has a power of 650 hp, it is easy to calculate that the specific power is 0.66 hp. for every kilogram. The specified power is developed by a naturally aspirated Cosworth V12 engine with a volume of 4 liters.

You can also note the exclusively manual transmission and a 400mm fan in the rear of the car, which is designed to create additional downforce, replacing the rear wing.

In total, the company will produce only 100 road cars worth £2.8 million each. Most of them are already sold out. Another 25 track versions will also be produced, which, apparently, will not be able to travel on public roads.

The Federal Air Traffic Control Agency (FAA) has decided to form a committee responsible for improving licensing requirements for space launches. This decision was made due to dissatisfaction among industry representatives with the changes made in 2021.

“We recognize that the development of the new Part 450 regulations was rushed and continue to learn from our mistakes,” commented Calvin Coleman, director of the FAA’s space office, during a conference on commercial space transportation organized by the Federation of Commercial Space Transport. space flights.

The newly formed committee will focus on a number of issues, including a new approach to licensing of throwback and hybrid vehicles, as well as the development of an alternative licensing process for vehicles in the testing phase. In addition, committee members will actively engage industry representatives.

In 2021, the FAA consolidated four separate rules established previously to form a new “Part 450”, which provides the basic criteria governing the process for issuing licenses for launch and re-entry of space objects, as well as assessing public safety risks and approving operations , which do not pose a danger to the population. Outdated licenses must be brought to the new rules by March 2026.

However, the changes made to the 2021 licensing rules did not fully meet industry expectations. Moreover, these changes have made the licensing process more complex and costly, as Caryn Schonewerk, president of CS Consulting, told Congress in October.

Licensing reform aims to move away from rigid rules and regulations to a more flexible approach based on performance and safety to give launch operators more freedom to reach their potential, Coleman explained.

The FAA issued a record 124 space launch licenses in 2023, triple the 2020 number. And the FAA expects that figure to nearly double by 2026, according to a press release.
