Based on the same architecture as the road-going Ren, the fighter jet-inspired design was penned by Fabrizio and Giorgetto Giugiaro. Like the current car, the Ren RS utilizes the company’s Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle powertrain, or "TREV" for short. The futuristic powertrain uses a diesel-powered micro turbine to drive a generator and rapidly recharge the battery. A pair of electric motors drive the front wheels, while another four are located at the rear. With a 28.4-kWh lithium-ion polymer battery pack, the Ren RS produces 1,287 horsepower and 1,725 lb-ft of torque. Weighing in at 4,087 pounds, the Ren RS has a power-to-weight ratio of 629 hp per ton.
