That Evoque-style body hides a bespoke chassis made from T45 tubes, and has been literally crash tested for over four years. The suspension - twin Reiger dampers on each corner - cost £5000 each and feature a variety of tricks a Terminator would find advanced.
A corner control valve detects whether you're on a straight or corner and adjusts the compression damping of the outer wheel, meaning less body roll, while a rebound control valve softens the damping depending on - and this is brilliant - whether the wheels are on the ground or not. An Evoque catching some air? We think so.
