Tritium will build just eleven examples of its 671-hp electric supercar.
A Finnish company by the name of Tritium is devising what it calls the "most customizable supercar in the world," with a big reveal scheduled for Monaco this June if all goes according to plan, and it's an intriguing concept. Just eleven examples will be built, each styled uniquely according to the wishes of the customer; the sample that Tritium has been touting features a very Italian-esque front end, with a dramatic, unique rear dominated by a huge grille.
This particular example reminds us of the Lamborghini Aventador, which isn't exactly an insult. But unlike the Italian supercar, the Tritium will be a pure-electric vehicle, with a 671-horsepower powertrain providing up to 186 miles of emissions-free range.
Meanwhile, the Tritium's chassis is a lightweight tubular space frame, and even after taking ownership, customers will be able to change the car's styling on a whim by swapping out its easy-to-replace carbon composite body panels. That's not unlike BMW's admittedly strange Z1 roadster - a car whose chief selling point was that its color could be changed in an afternoon by replacing all its exterior panels, with only basic hand tools required.
Tritium says that its uniquely customizable electric supercar was developed with input from renowned experts in numerous fields like luxury yacht design and high-end audio.
Now, the bad news: Tritium's new supercar will wear a price tag of €1.1 million - about $1.2 million US - when all is said and done, putting it well beyond the reach of most mortals, and even many demigods. What's more, Tritium could face a number of obstacles when it comes to the supercar's scheduled public debut in Monaco - a country that only just called off its annual F1 grand prix over concerns related to the novel coronavirus.
Still, the "most customizable supercar in the world" is coming, and it will be interesting to see if its unique, body-swapping concept gets picked up by other sports car manufacturers.
