Techrules Ren Is An Innovative Italian Supercar from… China
Chinese automaker Techrules takes a shot at supercar fans from all over the world, aiming straight at our hearts with their first production model. Called Techrules Ren, this exotic piece of machinery has taken everyone who attended the 2017 Geneva Motor Show by surprise, and it’s nothing short of spectacular.
The ravishing supercar can be apparently purchased in three different configurations, with two, four, and six electric motors, featuring a patented diesel-fueled turbine (TREV) charging system.
If it all sounds complicated, maybe it’s because it is, but here are the simple facts – the six-motor version can deliver an astonishing 1,287 hp and 2,340 Nm of torque, delivered by two electric motors at the front and four at the rear. 0 to 100 km/h is dealt with in just 2.5 seconds and the top speed is supposed to be 320 km/h (199 mph). Impressive, right?
For those of you scared by said performance figures, the company will also offer 858 hp and 1,560 Nm of torque in the four-motor version, or 429 hp and 780 Nm of torque for the two-motor option. Three battery packs provide the necessary juice, with capacities of 14 kWh, 25 kWh and 32 kWh, 15 minutes being apparently enough to charge them up to 80 percent.
Furthermore, customers will get to choose one of two types of TREV – 30 kW and 80 kW, with the Techrules Ren bragging about a 2,000 km (1,243 miles) range on 80 liters of fuel – the zero-emission all electric range of 200 km (124 miles) seems like enough as well.
Imagined by the well known Italian automotive designer Giorgetto Giugiaro and his son Fabrizio, this extraordinary supercar shows off a striking modular 3-cockpit look, where you will find 3 monitoring screens, fine Italian leather, denim fabric, and exposed carbon-fiber section.
The Chinese company went for incorporated speakers and microphones into the seats to improve communication between passengers. A limited run of just 96 units will be hand-built in Italy, with only 10 scheduled to be constructed per year, but there’s still no word on pricing.
