The red-painted Enyaq iV has a panoramic glass roof, six antennas, special sirens, a refrigerator and a state-of-the-art communication and a command centre in the rear. This equipment allows information to be transmitted to and from the vehicle, and Christian Prudhomme can also give instructions and organise the traffic in the field of participants from here. He will also maintain contact with the race commissioners and other tour vehicles and exchange information with them regarding the status of the race.
