This is the Elektron Quasar
It is a 2,300bhp EV hypercar from Germany
There are many EV hypercars with around 2,000bhp today. The Aspark Owl, Rimac C Two and Lotus Evija spring to mind. However now some Germans have decided that 300bhp more was what was needed to perfect the recipe.
The car tasked with doing that is called the Elektron Quasar and this is the second model in the pipeline for the company after the Elektron One which will have 1,000bhp less. That car was due to be revealed in Geneva this year but that obviously won’t happen and the car has been postponed.
The power for the Quasar will come from 4 electric motors-one on each wheel. This will also allow torque vectoring to control the power and aid cornering.
How fast will that power propel the 1,500kg(estimated) Quasar? 1.65 seconds to 60 and a top speed of 280mph. The top speed is limited to that figure electronically.
How much for this lunacy? £1.6 million. Only 99 of them are planned and they will be built over a 3 year production span which is starting in 2023.
Only problem is that is this genuine? We have never seen a product from them before so we can only wait and see.
