Many wealthy people all over the globe are really interested in getting their hands on an electric hypercar that can churn out as much as 2,000 horsepower with additional options in the future. Well, this Estrema Fulminea is about to make that wish come true. The Italian hypercar is set to be launched in May, 2021.
The Fulminea is set to be the first car from the Automobili Estrema, a newly established company by Gianfranco Pizzuto, a former shareholder and marketer of Fisker in Europe, and based in Modena in Italy.
What makes this delightful and powerful Estrema Fulminea different from other electric hypercars around is the presence of its one-of-a-kind battery pack. According to the carmaker, the Fulminea is set to be the first-ever road-legal hypercar to come fitted with a “hybrid” battery pack that ensures the perfect combination of solid-state cells and Ultra-capacitors.
It was further revealed that the two distinct cell types are not combined exactly as we initially envisaged. Rather, they are packed into two separate cases created out of carbon fiber. The bigger solid-state Li-ion battery park is fitted behind the passenger cell ahead of the rear axle while the ultracapacitor pack is mounted close to the front axle. Featuring “cell-to-pack” technology, the solid-state cells come from the Avesta Battery Energy Engineering.
The outcome of this brilliant technological feat according to Estrema is a hypercar fitted with a 100 kWh battery pack with a massive energy density of 450 Wh/kg. The company also expects the batteries in this hypercar to offer a weight of 300 kg while the entire vehicle will weigh around 1,507 kg. Additionally, the powertrain will feature four electric motors generating an output of 2,040 horsepower. The company also believes that the Fulminea will be able to sprint from zero to 60 mph in less than 10 secs and a driving range of 323 miles on the WLTP cycle.
According to reports, the Estrema Fulminea will be launched officially on the 13th of May at the Turin Automobile Museum. The first batch of the production units will be delivered to their customers in the second half of 2023.
