We’ve all seen the headlines about the Croatian built 1,088 hp electric supercar already. It has 1,200 pound foot of torque, does 0-60 in 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 190 mph. On top of that is comes with a price tag stating it’s not for the peasants of this world.
What’s interesting in this video is the run through of the granular control given to the cars dynamics and showing the ability of the driver to to tune the car on the fly.
With a motor at each wheel the idea of being able to control the bias of the four wheel drive through a slider, or being simply to opt for pure front or rear wheel drive makes electric cars as a concept look a lot more interesting in the long term.
Add in brake bias adjustment as well as control of the KERS at your fingertips in real time, then all that tinkering in Gran Turismo and Forza may well pay off when the technology eventually becomes affordable for non multi millionaire playboys and girls.
