This thing looks surprisingly legit.
Next EV is a Chinese company that is promising the world a 1,360-horsepower all-electric supercar. According to Car News China, the supercar is set to debut on November 21st in London, England. Let’s pause here for one second. We live in an age where it’s not all that hard for an upstart car company with big dreams to secure some cash and create a prototype. Said prototype usually doesn’t run and serves as little more than a prop during its own press conference. It goes without saying that we expected Next EV to follow this blueprint.
That’s what we were thinking before we saw this video, anyway. It was shot at the Nurburgring and shows the Next EV supercar out for testing.
We only get a glimpse of the unnamed supercar in this short clip, which is unfortunate as it looks quite pretty. The car was originally spotted out for testing by a fan of the Nurburgring blog Bridge to Gantry, with said fan posting a photo of it to the site’s Facebook page. More photos and videos, including this one, eventually were shared. In the video you can see the Chinese supercar being tailed by an Audi A7 with what looks like camera equipment on its hood. It looks like Next EV is shooting some video ahead of the car’s launch next month. We’ll admit that Next EV wasn’t even on our radar before this video, but now we’re excited to see what they have in the works. Fence photo by Uwe Oeynhausen via Bridge to Gantry.
