(CNN)It’s already at the forefront of innovation, but Formula E continues to push the boundaries and has unveiled a sleek new car design for the next season.
The new-look model, known as the Gen2 EVO, will sport a range of structural changes including a front wing, a shark-like dorsal fin, a distinctive curved rear wing and updated livery for the 2020-21 edition of the all-electric racing series.
“The Gen2 already stands out as one of the most striking race cars to hit the track, and just as the name implies, the Gen2 EVO is another evolution of the distinctive design,” said Formula E founder and chairman Alejandro Agag.”Its futuristic design once again showcases Formula E as the category for innovation in both technological advances and appearance.”READ: ‘Your body is the limit, not the car’Read MoreREAD: ‘Racing series hopes to ‘accelerate use of electric vehicles’
