This car is clearly inspired by the British-designed [[wp:Lotus_Elise|Lotus Elise]] and similar Lotus-designed models.

The sides of the car are very curvy and the greenhouse shrinks in width towards the rear of the car.

The main lines that form the edge of the side intakes for the car are also curved. The intake just in front of the rear wheel arch features a CFRP insert. The wheelbase of the car is relatively short, giving the car the appearance of a lightweight, compact roadster, typical to a Lotus-related design.

The rear end of the MR Roadster is inspired by the [[wp:Tesla_Roadster|Tesla Roadster]], which also has a body delivered by Lotus.

This car utilises an [[Drivetrains in GTA V|MR drivetrain layout.]]

The Voltic is a very fast car, with incredibly quick and responsive acceleration, and an excellent top speed. Since it is an electric vehicle, the Voltic has a specially-tuned single-speed transmission which directly drives the rear wheels. This results in the vehicle having a very quick throttle response. Its powerful electric engine provides sufficient torque for the vehicle to climb steep hills with ease, and acceleration in this vehicle is one of the best in the game, tied with the [[Rapid GT]] sports car. Handling is quick and sharp, thanks to its very light design and low profile, but its short wheelbase could lead to loss of control, especially at high speeds. Also, its light weight makes it very easy to get pushed off the road by other heavier cars. The vehicle's durability is mediocre, as its body panels are very easily deformable and detachable from collisions. The wheels also have a tendency to get bent and lock up easily.

This car is inspired by the Tesla Roadster and Lotus Elise with styling from the Hennessey Venom GT. As such it features a low front end with a fairly tall front face, featuring three bumper grilles; the central grille spanning two thirds of the bumper width and then a smaller one either side. The headlights are totally ovular, which somehow resembles Rinspeed sQuba, an amphibious car based on Lotus Elise. The manufacturer emblem is located right in front of the bonnet/hood, in the centre. The bonnet/hood features two large, curved-edge intakes placed in the middle.

The sides of the car are very curvy and the greenhouse shrinks in width towards the rear of the car. The main body line curves downwards between the two arches, but curves upwards for either arch, more so for the rear arch, much like a Series 2 Lotus Exige. The main lines that form the edge of the side intakes for the car are also curved. The intake just in front of the rear wheel arch features a CFRP insert. The wheelbase of the car is relatively short, giving the car the appearance of a lightweight, compact roadster, typical of a Lotus-related design. The wheels featured on this car are split five spoke wheels, which appear to be inspired by those found on the Lotus Exige S.

The rear end of this car features rear lighting made up of two circular lamps either side of a central section. The lower area of the rear bumper has a plastic insert. This rear face arrangement very much resembles a Series 2 Lotus Exige.

Although this car features a Lotus body, it may in fact be inspired by the Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid hypercar.
