Meet Tecnicar Lavinia, Italy's first electric supercar
New EV Boasts 789 Horsepower, 180-Mile Range
Meet Tecnicar's newest project, the Lavinia. The Sicilian company, whose prior work includes an electric city car called the Genius, aims to build this all-electric supercar boasting an output of 789 horsepower, according to Inhabitat. That's enough to do 0-62 miles per hour in 3.2 seconds before heading to its top speed of 186 mph. Range isn't terrible either, with the Lavinia able to go 180 miles on a single charge. As you can see in these renderings, it's all packaged in an appropriately exotic-looking body.
The Lavinia isn't finished yet, though. Tecnicar is building a prototype that it aims to have ready in time for a debut at Top Marques Monaco in April. We don't have a lot of the details about the car yet (it's easy to imagine some tarmac-warping torque figures), but we'll learn more when the Lavinia makes its way to the show circuit, if not sooner.
It's easy to be cynical about cars like this, and the likelihood of them becoming a reality, but the Tecnicar Lavinia is just one of many electric supercars in the works around the world. Perhaps one day it'll end up as a poster on the wall of some budding auto enthusiast, right between the Ferrari and the Lamborghini.
