Engineers shoehorned a 1.6-liter Ecotec engine into the Adam, featuring variable camshaft phasing that develops roughly 185 hp and 190 Nm (140 lb-ft) of torque. Power is transmitted through a Sadev sequential five-speed gearbox and a limited-slip differential with a multi-disc lock. To ensure optimal handling, the vehicle is equipped with several traction settings, including asphalt and gravel settings, guarantees maximum traction and dynamic handling. 4-piston Brembo calipers are tasked with stopping the vehicle, which are assisted by a hydraulic ‘fly-off’ handbrake, and braking pressure regulation system for the rear axle.
The interior is all business, including a roll cage and SPARCO racing seats compatible with a HANS device. The vehicle also features an LCD gear indicator, control light and MONIT trip computer, along with a central control panel, a map reading light and an electric fire extinguisher.
