A new carmaker from Las Vegas has teased its first model ahead of an official unveiling next month.
The new outfit is called PSC Motors - and it’s going all out on the first model by building a supercar called the SP-200 SIN.
The SP-200 SIN’s power output, if you can believe it, is touted to be 1700 horsepower (1268kW).
While those may seem like improbable numbers, they're perhaps plausible when you consider the powerplant is no less than a 783kW 9.0 litre V8 matched with a single 485kW electric motor.
The car is a range-extended plug-in hybrid, which boasts an electric-only range of around 48km. Recharging can be done at home, at via the V8 petrol engine while the car is underway.
The powerplant is mid-mounted, with drive going to the rear wheels only via an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The SP-200 SIN’s weight is 1411kg, thanks in part to a combined aluminium and carbon-fibre construction.
PSC Motors says it has been working on the SP-200 SIN for five years, with a design that pays tribute to some of the world’s great supercars.
The SP-200 SIN will first be unveiled in concept form, with a production version set to follow in 2016. Stay tuned to TMR for more.
