Elektron motors quasar: germans plan world’s fastest car – with 2.300 hp

It is set to become the fastest production car in the world: In two years, the electric car start-up Elektron Motors from Frankfurt am Main wants to bring out a super sports car for the Guinness Book of Records. And there are several record-breaking things about the Quasar.

Little has been heard of the Elektron Motors start-up so far. Or nothing at all. All the greater the astonishment that is now triggered by an announcement from the Hessians: In just two years, they want to build the fastest series-produced car in the world.

450 km/h top speed and 100 km/h in 1.65 seconds – data that makes you dizzy just reading it. And which the Quasar christened supercar promises to be. No fewer than four electric motors with a total output of 2.300 hp they are supposed to make possible.

Each motor drives one of the four wheels individually. Its performance should be variably controllable. This “Elektron Smart Torque Vectoring System” (ESTV) promises special driving fun and quite high speed not only in a straight line, but also in curves.

Series production is set to start in 2023 – and end after just 99 cars have been built. The unit price: around 2.6 million euros.

Rimac shows the way

A million-dollar racer from a start-up – of course, success is not programmed in this case. But it is also not excluded. Best proof: Rimac from Croatia. The young company cooperates with many well-known car manufacturers, including Aston Martin, Renault, Hyundai and Kia. And it also builds its own electric supercars.

This year, for example, Rimac is planning to present its new C-Two. It, too, is powered by four e-motors, which together produce 1.915 hp. The C-Two needs less than two seconds up to speed 100 and reaches maximally 412 km/h. Its price is said to be more than one million euros.

In the automotive world, Rimac has already earned a high reputation: Porsche acquired shares in the Croatian company back in 2018, which were increased for the first time in 2019. Just in March, Porsche invested another 70 million euros and now holds 24 percent of Rimac shares.
