The Techrules GT96 hypercar is being co-designed by Italdesign founder Giorgetto Giugiaro and his son Fabrizio.
A production version of the China-based brand's gas turbine-charged electric two-seater is due to be revealed early next year, and Techrules has enlisted the Giugiaro designers to craft the shape of the finished model.
LM Gianetti, a company with extensive experience in the production of road and competition cars, has also been drafted in to help out with engineering and production.
Techrules previewed what its GT96 road car would look like with a concept (pictured) at this year’s Geneva motor show. The carbonfibre-bodied model featured a six-motor electric powertrain with a gas turbine range extender system that could be fuelled by biogas or natural gas.
The system, which Techrules calls Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle (TREV) technology, means fewer batteries have to be used, saving weight and therefore improving performance.
