dynamic driving experience.
"The EMP2 delivers an extremely high-performance
level, but it also has enabled us to produce a strong, dynamic and robust
design. The new morphology has led to shorter overhangs for better
manoeuvrability, a higher bonnet for greater rigidity and an optimised
architecture to provide an interior that is both practical and modular."
