Breaking the mould of previous single-seater categories, the FG-Twin is a modular race car, offering an all-electric powertrain with both rear-wheel and four-wheel drive. The pioneering model has the ability to run the front and rear axle at 350kW of peak power and offers two different performance levels for the FG1 and FG2 championships. Alongside the different power levels, the purpose designed easy change system allows for quick adjustments to the hardware, creating a seamless transition and tailored racing experiences for drivers competing in the two FG Series Championship levels.

FG1 will perform the FG-Twin cars’ greater power level, making it the pinnacle of the FG Series racing ladder. Devised for more experienced professional drivers, FG1 provides higher performance capabilities, increased downforce and greater freedom for setting up the car.

FG Series presented me with an intriguing proposition: to design an advanced open-wheel monoposto that meets performance and regulation goals and adds modern automotive styling. As a car designer passionate about motorsports, my task was to make it poster-worthy from every angle. The result is a machine with an iconic, rocket-inspired shape, automotive crease lines, balanced proportions, a dynamic stance, and sci-fi lighting details. Such attention to aesthetics is rare for racing cars, and I hope this excites racers and spectators of all generations alike.
