The Formula E is set for a big overhaul. The auto racing series that uses only electric vehicles has unveiled a new race car, called Spark SRTO5e, that takes racing to a whole new dimension. And its carbon-fiber finishing is just one aspect of it.

While the car will be showcased for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the racing body has revealed some visuals of it.

Here’s a look at what the car has to offer and how it’s designed.

The highlighting of this model is the placement of a ‘halo’ right on top of the driver’s area, which apparently is there to protect drivers from head injuries. Kudos to the engineers for molding it seamlessly into the design of the racing car.
