Startup company Laffite is planning to show off five electric vehicles at the 2023 Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix in early May, including a cool hypercar.
Laffite was created by Bruno Laffite, the grandchild of Jacques Laffite – an F1 driver from France who achieved six victories during his career that lasted from 1974 till 1986.
In 2020, Laffite Supercars released two types of cars: the X-24 supercar and the G-Tec X-Road off-roader. The X-24 looks like a racer you would see in Le Mans events, while the G-Tec X-Road resembles an SUV meant for rally raids such as those held in Dakar.
This week, GFG Style, a design firm run by the father and son duo of Giorgetto Giugiaro and Fabrizio, released teaser images of five new electric cars. They were requested by Laffite to build these vehicles within six months. The EVs came with three different designs and Laffite asked them to make cars that could race but work legally on public roads as well. The debut date of the five cars is set for May 3rd.
