Bugatti Develops 800HP All-Electric Supercar

by Joe on May 30, 2010

Bugatti has built a battery-powered supercar that delivers 597kW of power or around 800 horsepower. Based the chassis of a Bentley Continental GT, the new Bugatti prototype features an advanced lithium-ion battery that delivers 1,623 lb-ft of torque at 0 mph. While the prototype has been developed for technology demonstration and may never be displayed in public, the engineers are still facing problems with keeping the car charged over longer periods of time while at the same time exploring its maximum performance potential.
