This is the Model 5 Genesi. Or the mockup of what it could really be

This is the new Model 5 Genesi. Not exactly in the shape we expected, but a gorgeous one even so. The prototype is in fact a 1:1 mockup. With that in mind, apart from the dimensions and the tires, every other technical specification is a wish of what the supercar could be, if it ever gets produced.

A production version of the Model 5 Genesi would be powered by a 5.2 V10 that delivers 441 kW, mated to a 7-speed LDF dual-clutch transmission. The Genesi uses 20-inch wheels, with 265/35 R20 tires in the front axle and 305/30 R20 tires at the back. The car is 4,53 m long, 2,02 m wide and 1,28 m tall, with a 2,65 m wheelbase.

The car would be powerful and light (with an estimated weight of 1,250 kg) and it would have double-wishbone suspensions front and rear, with adaptive dampers.

We have no information if it is a rear-wheel drive or an all-wheel drive supercar, but we would bet on a rear-wheel drive model.

Probably we will never see one Model 5 Genesi on the streets, but, as a 1:1 business card, we must say that the mockup makes a tremendous case for presenting the work of Model 5.
