The 1,700 HP American Hybrid Hypercar Has Arrived

Reveal

And it's going to be more the just a digital image.

Following our report from a few days ago, Las Vegas-based PSC Motors has officially revealed renderings of its upcoming hybrid hypercar – an all-American monster that happens to have been designed by a 15-year-old Thai kid. The SP-200 SIN's production run, which is still in early stages of development, will be limited to 35 units. So what will those lucky buyers get when this dream becomes a reality? According to PSC, the mid-mounted 9.0-liter V8 will produce 1000 hp, in addition to a rear-wheel electric motor making 700 hp.

These will be mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, allowing the SP-SIN to reach a top speed of 280 mph and sprint from 0-60 in just 2.8 seconds. The car's carbon fiber and aluminum space frame will be wrapped in this stunning design, which includes slim headlights, an intense splitter and huge air intakes. Also noticeable are its wheel arch-mounted wing mirrors and side air intakes. The rear is home to a clear engine cover and large diffuser. And while 15-year-old Jennarong Muengtaweepongsa has already proven himself as a talented rendering artist (remember the Aston DB11 design study?), PSC Motors promises a production version as early as 2016.
