Click above for more high-res renderings of the Ronn Motors Scorpion

Ronn Motors, the company we introduced you to a while back, plans to properly introduce the world to its Scorpion supercar at the upcoming SEMA Show in Las Vegas. We have very real doubts as to whether the vehicle will function as the company claims. Ronn says its car breaks down water into hydrogen which is then injected into the twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine sourced from Acura. Sure, they could get some hydrogen from water and inject it into the engine along with the air/fuel mixture, but at what gain? These systems have been proven not to work many times, though some still claim that their fuel mileage has dramatically increased after installing them. Let's just say we are highly skeptical but would love nothing more than to be proven wrong. In any case, we are looking forward to getting an early glimpse into the production bodywork considering that the renderings that we've seen have been pretty darn impressive, as you can see from our gallery below.

      I would just love to burn some rubber in that bad boy.

      I really like the design of the car however there is not much detail on the drive train and hydrogen use. The more detail they provide the higher confidence level I would have that this will actually happen....hope it does!

      They do not explain in details how their system works. They do not say if the hydrogen is pressurised and if the percentage of injection is constant at any rpm and they do not say if it add power over regular 100% gasoline operation. I think that this is an ambitious car and i wish them luck.

      Some big auto-truck compagnies should adopt this system sooner, im sure it save a lot of petrol consumption and it must wash the emissions right where they are made, inside the combustion chamber.
