Yes that’s what I thought. Alieno who? But if the specs turn out to be true you will be hearing a lot more about Alieno soon.

Founded in 2015 by Ahmed Merchev, Alieno, which means alien in italian, is a electric hypercar company from Bulgaria with less than 40 employees. The Arcanum is its first car and there are 4 versions to choose from, the least powerful version is the RP2 with just 2610hp but the one you really want is the RP5 which has 24 electric motors producing a combined 5221hp.

There are 6 motors for each wheel, so it’s 4 wheel drive, and each one can be independently controlled. Charging up should only take 30 minute if you have a 350KW charger and it will do 2 laps of the Nurburgring on a full charge.

The Arcanum is packed with tech including 17 cameras, LiDAR, GPS and 8 radar, all these sensors scan the environment in real time to help avoid accidents, theres also 8 airbags and 5-point harnesses to help keep you safe just incase all 5221hp are accelerating you towards a tree.

This is what Ahmed Merchev, founder and CEO of Alieno, had to say:

“ALIENO ARCANUM is an all-electric hypercar from the future with a brutal technical superiority, which is in the basis of the DNA of the brand ALIENO. This our first debut model, expresses clearly the mission of ALIENO to create hypercars with alien technologies from the future into the present. ALIENO ARCANUM does not follow the rules, but it creates new ones, providing an extremely exciting driving experience and enjoyment. By this, it touches not only the senses, but also your soul. Moreover, considering the intelligence of the car achieved through the ALIENO artificial intelligence systems built into it, it is like having at disposal your own alien, being your guide, your guardian and who teaches you how to reach its full potential, while driving it."

All that’s needed now is for someone to be brave enough to pay €1.5 million to find out if it’s any good.

So, do you think the Arcanum will ever be made?

  • ALIENO ARCANUM - design inspiration 2:

    Encho Enchev, CDO (Chief Design Officer) of ALIENO and chief designer of ARCANUM, shares:

    "The next source of inspiration for the model ARCANUM, comes from the United States Air Force. The aesthetics of special aircrafts like F-117 Night Hawk, F-22 Raptor and SR-71 Blackbird, play a key role in the shaping of ARCANUM. The last influence in the design, comes from the cult movie series Star Wars and in particular from the helmet of Darth Vader. The only thing you need to do, is to look at the rear of the car and use your imagination. The color scheme that we selected for the unveiling of the model, is visible varnished carbon-fiber with light blue accents at key spots."

  • 2 laps of the 'Ring.. Did everyone else miss that or are they deliberately ignoring the fact that it has almost no range?

  • I read nothing but negative comments in here, I get excited whenever someone designs and develops something like this. Sure, first thing I thought was that it looked like a lambo, but so what? It also looks like that shark in the picture, so I get the inspiration. I hope someone buys one, and they make it, and it’s amazing.

  • ALIENO ARCANUM - design inspiration 1:

    Encho Enchev, CDO (Chief Design Officer) of ALIENO and chief designer of ARCANUM, shares:

    "Like everything else we do at ALIENO, our goal with the model ARCANUM was to create something unique, something that you do not see every day and something with unmatched performance. The ARCANUM model combines sharp edges and smooth curves at the same time, which contributes to the creation of a unique and very distinctive design. The whole car looks like a sculpture and all the elements are actually functional and not just a decoration. The overall shape of the car and its low-profile, contribute to the creation of an aggressive looks. We have managed to achieve this exterior design, without compromising the comfort and ergonomics of the driver. ARCANUM is a model, that can accommodate pilots that are taller than 2m (6'7"). Very few hypercars nowadays are able to do that. For this project, we had few main sources of inspiration. The first one is the animal kingdom and sharks in particular. If you look at the front of the car you can see the resemblance. On top of the front fenders, you can see cooling vents, which look very much like shark gills. Another very interesting detail in the design is the element which bares the rear wing and looks like a shark fin.".

    • So instead of being unique you just copied Lamborghini, and added some Koenigsegg for the wing. Very impressive. This thing looks pretty much like what I imagine would happen if...
