This electric supercar aims to be the quickest on the market.
The EV market is a bit of a battleground right now, with manufacturers competing for the fastest 0-60 mph time. Faraday Future started the war when it smugly declared the FF 91 as the fastest accelerating production EV in the world. That was until the Tesla Model S P100D shattered its record to reclaim the crown. And now there’s a yet another competitor: enter new Switzerland-based startup company Classic Factory, which is preparing a new electric supercar that aims to take out the reigning Tesla Model S
Called the Elextra, Classic Factory claim that this extraordinary four-door and four-wheel drive supercar will rocket from 0-62 mph in less than 2.3 seconds. Quite how it’s achieved this bold claim remains to be seen, but powertrain details are being kept under wraps until the Geneva Motor Show. For now, the company is saying that the Elextra will be hand-built in Germany using “the highest level of engineering and craftsmanship available” and will be based on “the best electric vehicle platform in the world” in a limited production run of 100 units.
The idea behind Elextra is to combine pure lines reminding of the most exciting Italian super cars of the past, whilst being resolutely forward looking thanks to its low, sleek and beautiful design, paired with today's most advanced technology," its designer said. It’s not clear what stage of development the ambitious Elextra project is at, but Classic Factory is actively seeking funding from investors. After Faraday’s setbacks, that should tell you not to be optimistic at this stage, but we’ll reserve judgement until the Elextra prototype is shown at Geneva.
