Pariss has posted a 22-second video on its Facebook page that is heavy on shadows and innuendo and light on specifics. Technologic Vehicles says that the company is about to unveil a prototype of sorts. The concept involves a 1,900-pound battery-electric vehicle that will have more than 300 horsepower as well as a top speed of about 125 miles per hour. And the 0-60 miles per hour time will be less than three seconds. Mon dieu.
0-60 will take less than three seconds. Mon dieu.
At about $115,000, the car will be produced in real limited numbers (200 a year, max). And while the car won't be street legal, it will contain of ton of telematics and a bunch of cameras that will allow its owners to take the beast out to the track and participate in Pariss's performance-driving school. In fact, the single-charge range will allow for about 40 real-fun minutes on the track between charging sessions.
The car's been a few years in the making, as electric-vehicle prototypes tend to be. As far back as 2013, Gizmag was writing about what was then an electric roadster designed for street use. That version was a little lighter (1,650 pounds) and a little slower (0-60 mph in about five seconds), and it had an option for an onboard range extender. That car was shown off at the Geneva Auto Show, but this version looks a bit more fun. You can check out the Pariss website (in French, of course) here.
