How the winter test went
The automaker gave a tough challenge to the GTE by making it go over the Continental Divide at freezing temperatures to scale the heights of 8,500 feet. The manufacturer Drako gave the driving responsibility to the racer Andy Pilgrim. He took the electric sedan to the Winter Performance Track in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
This winter test was meant to judge handling of this sedan at high speed. Moreover, the rally driver David Hackl had the reins to drive the sedan on ice at Georgetown Lake, Colorado. Due to the extra powerful tires of the wheels, GTE was able to boast superior grip and go on a massive drift on the frozen water.
The GTE’s exterior is a visual representation of the bold emotion which comes in driving it. It’s design blends the muscular 4-seater body with the sophistication and sensuality of the authentic GT car.
The style is expressed in the fluidity of the lines and the elegance of the surface. It looks athletic, powerful and completely planted on the ground. The front fascia is constructed with 3 air intakes that displays aggressive beauty.
Other elements are linked to a play of lines which gives rise to signature details and slim lights.
