Say hello to China’s first supercar, a crazy concept that debuted at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Well, it’s actually two concepts, with one version geared towards track use and the other looking like a formidable street car. Both of them come from Techrules, a new Chinese R&D business that has developed what it calls Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle (TREV) technology. The company wants TREV to be the solution for next-generation electric vehicles because they say the tech the ability to deliver unprecedented range and efficiency.
The company’s claims seem pretty optimistic and far fetched; China’s first supercar concepts are aiming to produce around 1,030 horsepower and 6,372 pound-feet of torque. Yes, those are real figures, as Techrules reports torque at the front wheels comes in at 2,124 lb-ft, while the rear has 4,248 lb-ft of twist. The result is a zero-to-62-mph time of 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 217 mph. Believe it or not, that might not be the most impressive stat. The company claims it is aiming for a range of more than 1,243 miles.
