Project Objective

Produce the fastest car JLR have ever produced with the lightest, stiffest and most efficient body structure.

Penso in Action

  • Occupant packaging and powertrain layout study
  • Loadpath definitions
  • BIW, closure and body exterior engineering
  • CAE simulations of crash, NVH, thermal and durability loadcases
  • Materials and joining strategy selection
  • Interior design, engineering and simulation
  • Supply of the body complete in CFRP, and the interior.
