As electric cars become increasingly popular, it’s only right that we take the concept to its natural outlandish endpoint. That’s right, we’re talking about preposterously powerful leccy supercars: something like the gorgeous Drako GTE that’s just been unveiled by new startup Drako Motors. The striking four-seater sedan uses a fully electric quad motor architecture to generate 1,200 horsepower and 8,800 Nm of combined wheel torque. On the road, or perhaps more sensibly on the racetrack, that means a blistering top speed of 206 mph and uber-precise turning capabilities. We also know the car will pack a 90kWh battery, although Drako hasn’t served up any range estimates as yet, so we’ve got no idea how far the GTE will actually take you on a full charge. Still, if you’re in the market for an electric supercar, we can’t imagine you’ll be turned off by the thought of having to refuel after a few laps on your local circuit. You’ll probably need the breather, anyhow.
