A microturbine powered supercar with a 0-60mph time of 3.0sec and top speed in excess of 200mph will go on sale later this year.
The carbonfibre-built Velozzi supercar is powered by a 770bhp AC-induction electric motor charged by a 65kW microturbine built by Capstone, which made headlines when it unveiled its own supercar prototype at last year's LA motor show.
According to Velozzi, the car has an electric-only range of 200 miles, when the diesel-powered microturbine kicks in to recharge the batteries and give the car a range of more than 1000 miles.
Velozzi is also planning a second microturbine-powered car. The Velozzi Solo is a lightweight electric crossover with an on-board 30kW microturbine. It will go on sale next year.
Velozzi is a Los Angeles-based car design and manufacturing firm.
