The Renovo Coupe (due in 2015) could quite easily be taken for a Shelby Daytona Coupe. Seeing is one thing, but there’d be something missing from the occassion – the absence of a roar of an American V8 engine. The Renovo is driven by twin electric sequential motors producing 500 horsepower and an astounding 1,000 pound-feet of torque. Not only that, but all the power is available from a standstill, letting the The Couple silently muscle up to 60 miles per hour in just 3.4 seconds. That is what I call fast. And speaking of fast, it can charge in only 30 minutes.
The Coupe is driven by twin sequential axial flux electrical motors powered by 740 volt lithium ion pack. Electric power steering, custom billet 3-piece Michelin Pilot Super Sport wheels and tires and 6-piston monobloc calipers, all under a genuine factory modified Shelby American CSX9000 make it a worthy handler and an instant classic. Keep your eyes and ears open for availability and prices.
