Six crucial performance optimisations, one powerful package

Throttle Response

The throttle response has been recalibrated to provide improved feedback and accelerator reaction - ideal for overtaking or during active driving on a twisty road.

Off-Throttle Response

The engine and gearbox have been calibrated to provide faster responses when the driver suddenly lifts off the throttle, providing improved predictability and control.

Gearshift Speed

The gearshift speed has been increased, allowing the car to accelerate faster and react more directly to driver input.

Gearshift Precision

Gearshift points have been calibrated to utilise the optimised mid-range engine performance, while the gear hold function maintains the same gear (wherever possible) when cornering with high lateral g-force.

Engine Performance

All Drive-E optimisations are made to provide greater performance in the engine’s mid-range power band - perfect for the sporty driver when overtaking, entering a highway or exiting a corner.

Torque for AWD

The dynamic driving mode has been calibrated to provide the rear wheels with more power on acceleration.
