The Spanish Quimera electric supercar was put through a test at the Motorland Aragon track in Spain. The first electric prototype AEGT is scheduled for an official launch next month as an EVO II.
The Quimera AEGT is powered by three electric motors producing a total 700 horsepower and 737 lb-ft of torque, which may be the most powerful electric supercar ever produced. Battery juice is provided through a series of lithium-ion polymer batteries packed on both sides by the doors.
Power is transferred through a sequential transmission. The Quimera AEGT electric supercar is capable of accelerating from 0-62 mph in just 3.5 second and a top speed reaching 180 mph.
“This car is manufactured to show that EV cars can be developed at racing performance,” Quimera chairman Javier de Rocafort, said. “We want to showcase the technological potential and invite people to start thinking about future professional motorsport alternatives.”
“This is why we would like to further develop the car and the concept and organize exciting races as soon as we have enough cars/teams committed. Anybody willing to test the car will be more than welcome to join the official test to be organized.”
In addition, a second prototype is scheduled to hit the track in early 2012. Spanish Quimera plans to compete the AEGT super electric car at the track.
