Serpent produced the Tenforce back in the early 90's. Was the first on road electro to have suspension and shocks but it was too heavy, because carbon fibre wasnt readily available back then, and therefore didnt sell very well.

New serpent car looks like a Cyclone on steroids. Bulkheads look beefed up.

After speaking with the designer there is going to be some small changes very minor. But overall the car looks good. It's a good thing when there are more choices in the touring world now Im stumped on what to run this upcoming season
