Yuichi Kanai says the newly designed low-profile, streamlined body produces excellent running stability and “hugs the track tightly.” Relentless testing and refinement of prototypes has resulted in a body design that maintains excellent balance.
The body design features a steep angle on the nose section to increase steering response on all track conditions. The addition of ribs minimizes damage from turnovers without impacting style and performance.
The front section features a revised positioning of the cabin with the front window angle from the MP9 TKI4 to deliver superior turning performance and a more stable posture in the air over the larger jumps.
Airflow is channeled for aerodynamic effect with lines running from a narrowed front to the more narrow side pods of the MP10.
The styling of the body around the engine is similar to Supercars and channels airflow for better cooling of the engine.
A wing on the rear section of both side pods smoothly transitions airflow to the main wing, dramatically increasing rear grip.
Rear wing features two vertical fins to enhance stability through jumps. A Gurney flap can be attached to the trailing edge for three downforce adjustment settings: without flap / 5mm / 8mm.
The wing stay on the MP9 TKI4 used many parts and a total of 8 screws. The MP10 has adopted a molded one-piece design that is more durable and at the same time, reduces weight by 7 grams.
