History[edit]

Chunky Vazirani has worked as a designer in different automotive companies like Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo, Yamaha and Rolls-Royce before he founded Vazirani Automotive. He graduated from the ArtCenter College of Design in California, where some prominent automotive personalities like Chris Bangle studied automotive design[3]. The Shul concept is designed by Chunky under the guidance of Kazunori Yamauchi, the producer of the Gran Turismo video game series. With the Shul concept, a new Inspire GT category within the latest Gran Turismo GT Sport will take shape[4].

Shul[edit]

Shul Inspire Gran Turismo (pronounced “Shool”) is still in concept stage. Aerodynamics was a key inspiration for the exterior design.

The design is inspired from Indian philosophy, with the side air vents being inspired from “Trishul” or Trident[5]. 'Shul', the name is derived from the word ‘Trishul' too.The headlamps are inspired from the folded palms when one says Namaste. The White paint for Shul was chosen to pay homage to the Himalayas[6].

It would have a carbon fiber tub chassis with the battery pack which is placed on the floor area behind the driver. The body shell of the car would be entirely made of carbon fibre. Having an electric powertrain, Individual electric motors would be placed at all four wheels. The battery pack will be smaller than usual, but would be charged by a petrol-powered jet turbine that will be mounted behind the driver. This would save weight and would reduce range-anxiety as the batteries can be charged by a power source on board. Similar to Koenigsegg Regera, Shul will have single ratio transmission[7]. The car is still under development. It has been in the works for three years and wouldn’t be in the market until 2020-21. Performance figures and interior details will be released as development continues. Production of the Shul will be limited to only 25 units worldwide[8]
