One of the key design aspects of the new Super Series is the absence of radiator intakes on the side of the car which was a feature that defines the aesthetics of the mid-engine sports car; this function is now performed instead by the unique "double-skin" aerodynamic form of the dihedral doors, which channel air to the high-temperature radiators that cool the mid-mounted engine.
