The maximum speed has not been announced, but it is known that more than 400 km / h!

The car will have a battery for 200 kilowatt hours. That is, a power reserve of 1000 km (per charge) at the speed allowed on the track! (another record)

«The meaning of all this is to give a slap in the face to the cars on the Internal combustion engine!» , — Ilon said with a proud smile.

In the «roadster» there will be three engines, i.e. it is all-wheel drive, one will be on the front axle, two on the rear axle.
