In fact, as optional, are available the air suspension, that can be calibrated on six levels and, when the car is parked, they changed height to make easier get in and get out of the car. The prop shaft is made of carbon fibre and there is an extensive use of materials like aluminium in order to make the car more light and achieve a top-class speed and acceleration.
