Ariel might have built an 1180bhp electric P40 ‘Hipercar’

Ariel might have built an 1180bhp electric P40 ‘Hipercar’

Ariel, the quirky British car maker, is known for its insane builds and now it seems they have already taken insanity to the next level. Because now, they have come up with a 1600kg car with 1180bhp of combined output under the hood and an unleashed 1800Nm of torque.

Built as a joint exercise in partnership with three small-scale technology firms and funded by the UK government, Ariel seems to have built the ultimate electric supercar, which is in the same league as the Nio Ep9 and its ilk. At each of the four wheels, you have 295bhp electric motors operating in sync thanks to the electronic wizardry of computers, processors and semiconductors.

Named the P40, the Ariel is expected to hit 100kmph from standstill in 2.4 seconds and 100mph in 3.8 seconds. It is built on an aluminium monocoque chassis and will be clad with carbon-fibre body panels, the final form of which is yet to be finalised. We are sure it will be radical but we don’t know if it will be open-wheeled like the Ariel Atom or the Nomad.

It is said that the car will be unveiled at the Low-Carbon Vehicle Show in Millbrook, UK and will go into production in 2020.
