The Shelby American CSX 9000 is based on the legendary 1964 Shelby Daytona, which counts wins at Le Mans, Monza and the Nurburgring in its pedigree. Renovo takes the CSX 9000 chassis and adds its electric driveline components.
Renovo's high-voltage approach to the drive electronics allows smaller gauge wiring, as their is less heat. The three battery packs give the motors 400 kilowatts of output, equal to 500 horsepower, and 1,000 pound-feet of torque from 0 rpm.
The driver can set levels of regenerative braking through the shifter, but on the track there is no substitute for the friction brakes, six-piston caliber on the fronts and four-piston caliper at the rear wheels.
