Korea's Oullim Spirra supercar heading to Geneva under electric power
First introduced back in 2008, the Spira is a mid-engined sports car powered by a Hyundai-sourced 2.7-liter V6 with either one or two turbochargers, and as much as 600 horsepower. It's sold in a handful of Asian and European markets, but will reportedly soon make its debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show... with a bit of a twist.
Instead of the internal-combustion V6, a new outfit dubbed Spirra Europe is preparing to introduce a new version of the sports car with an all-electric powertrain. Spirra Europe is setting up spot in Friesland, the Netherlands, where it will assemble the cars to European specifications, with all the battery tech and all-wheel drive where the existing version powers only the rear wheels. Pricing is tipped to come in around 200,000 euro (equivalent to about $270k at current exchange rates).
