Watch out, Rimac.

Forget about all the major advancements in EV battery technology, the expansion of the electric charging network across the US, and autonomous driving, all we care about is going fast. The good news is that there are a ton of startup companies that feel the same, and a bunch of massively powerful hypercars has started showing their face in recent months. Cars such as the Rimac Nevera, an all-electric hypercar from Croatia continues to blow the doors off of well-established competitors, and others, such as the Apollo IE, keep the flame of exotic Italian V12 machinery alive and well. So what more do we need? An EV supercar from India of course.

We first heard of manufacturer Mean Metal Motors back in 2015 when the company owner and billionaire Sarthak Paul was trying to raise money for India's first-ever hypercar the M-Zero. Paul was clearly not satisfied and has now come back with an even wilder car: the all-electric Azani. Despite the car only living in the imaginations of its creators, and their hard drives, Mean Metal Motors isn't shy when it comes to divulging stats and figures. According to the manufacturer, the Azani will produce 1,000 horsepower, 738 lb-ft of torque, and a top speed of 220 mph. The zero to sixty sprint? 2.1 seconds.

The Azani's 120-kWh battery pack will last a claimed 325 miles. The company says that the Azani will be constructed in micro-factories with the help of artificial intelligence, to reduce construction costs by an impressive 25 percent, and will be based on a modular aluminum space frame chassis which means other versions could also be in the pipeline. No solid timeline has been set for the release of the Azani, and pricing is still a mystery, but on a positive note, the website is taking reservations. We wouldn't hold our breath.
