American performance car upstart Renovo Motors has revealed its first-ever model, simply called the Renovo Coupe.

While Renovo admits (and boasts) that its new creation is basically a Shelby Daytona Coupe lookalike, the new US carmaker says that’s where the similarities end.

The Renovo Coupe is powered only by an electric motor producing ‘over 500 BHP’ (over 373kW), while available torque is an impressive 1356Nm.

Put all that power and torque to the ground, and the Coupe will hit 100km/h from rest in 3.4 seconds, on its way to a top speed somewhere beyond 200km/h.

The Coupe will travel up to 160km on a single charge, but owners need wait only 30 minutes for a ‘quick charge’ at that point before hitting the road again. A full charge takes around five hours.

Energy is stored in the Coupe’s 740 volt lithium-ion battery pack, and drive is via a single-speed, direct drive transmission.

Elsewhere, the Coupe features six-piston callipers up front matched with 14-inch cross-drilled rotors, while four-piston callipers and 13.4-inch rotors take care of stopping at the rear.

Performance springs are fitted along with adjustable dampers, and the Coupe sits on custom-built three-piece wheels wearing Michelin tyres.

A limited production run is set to begin in 2015, with prices for US customers starting from US$529,000 (AU$567,780).
