New Hypercar Claims It's Lighter Than A Ferrari SF90 Stradale

Supercar / 11 Comments

Slovenian manufacturer Tushek is building a new 937-horsepower hybrid hypercar.

Remember Tushek? The Slovenian supercar-make appeared in 2012 with the 450-horsepower Renovatio T500. Now, seven years later, it's back with a 937-horsepower hybrid supercar built to take on the likes of Ferrari and Lotus.

Tushek claims its new TS 900 H Apex weighs just 3,108 lbs, around 350 lbs lighter than the new Ferrari SF90 Stradale and 500 lbs lighter than the recently announced Lotus Evija. That weight saving is thanks to a chrome-moly space-frame chassis and a carbon-fiber body that helps it sprint to 62 mph in 2.5 seconds. Tushek also claims its new hypercar has a Bugatti-baiting top speed of 236 mph.

The TS 900's drivetrain consists of a 4.2-liter V8 and a pair of front-driving electric motors to generate a combined total of 937 horsepower and 1,033 lb-ft of torque. The six-speed sequential transmission helps further cut mass, weighing only 136 lbs.

To get that power down to the road, the TS 900 rides on Pirelli Trofeo Series R tires, wrapped around a set of BBS forged alloys, with a huge set of Brembo brakes to keep the driver out of trouble. For those that want to experience the insane performance with the wind in their hair, the TS 900 also has a removable hardtop.

"Over the past years, we have intensively developed and constructed advanced technological solutions for our new model, the TS 900 H APEX, in particular in the area of electric drive train," said Tushek founder and race-driver Aljosa Tushek. "Those developments are now incorporated in our latest model and have been successfully tested in race-track conditions over the past months. Our team is looking forward to presenting our supercar to Salon Prive's elite clientele."

As of yet, a price and launch date haven't been announced, but the new hypercar will be making its debut at Blenheim Palace in the UK next month.
