Pininfarina To Present Sleek Electric Supercar Concept At Geneva

Teaser

Just look at the size of those gullwing doors.

The Geneva Motor Show is nearly upon us, which will host a number of significant supercar debuts like the Ferrari 488 Pista, 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and the successor to the Rimac Concept_One. Hoping to stand out from the crowd is Pininfarina. The legendary Italian design house will present a new electric supercar concept developed with Hybrid Kinetic Group at the show. Called the HK GT Concept, the electric supercar will be the fourth concept car developed for the Hong Kong-based automotive startup.

It follows the H600 sedan revealed at last year’s Geneva show, as well as the K550 and K750 SUVs that were shown in Shanghai last year. In contrast, the HK GT Concept looks a lot more lustrous. As shown in the latest teaser image showing the car’s sleek silhouette, the concept will have massive gullwing doors that open upwards to reveal a four-seat cabin with no B-pillars. Featuring an extended hood, sloping roof, and LED lights, the HK GT’s coupe-style proportions make for an extremely attractive design. Pininfarina plans to put the H600 into production by 2020 with a very similar design to the concept, so the HK GT Concept could become a reality too if it’s well received.

Pininfarina says the HK GT Concept will be a plug-in hybrid with electric motors and an internal-combustion range extender. There’s no word yet on power or performance, but the H600 sent over 800 horsepower to all four wheels, using a micro turbine generator that functioned as a range extender, so we would expect the HK GT’s power output to be in the same region. No other details have been revealed, so we’ll just have to salivate over the teaser images released by the Italian design house until the Pininfarina HK GT Concept breaks cover at Geneva next week.
