Dr. Eng. Sergio Durante announced the successful conclusion of the project of a revolutionary Hypercar

15 December 2021

Dr. Eng. Sergio Durante presented the result of a new innovation collaboration programs to develop and test a super powerful hypercar.

The project overall concept was the integration of a new property concept of super-high performance powertrain and race chassis in am astonishing design car to build a reference in the hyper sport sector. The target was to show the reference in sport handling and aggressive design, targeting also both the performance on one hand and, on the other hand, to widely disseminate a serious solution for the human health and the environment preservation. The activity approach, as in all our creations, was to kept into the account from the critical rare materials savings to the test on the road for final homologation to the commercialisation of the concept and the product.

The Team was based on key technicians with long crosssectorial experiences in the automotive and motorsport fields.

Dr. Eng. Sergio Durante, in the Motorsport field, already anticipated the planning of the FIA (International Automobile Federation) of 5 years building in 2017, in collaboration with EFESTO, the first hybrid rally race car for Ice racing in the World, which was the most extreme bench test for the electric technology. The car, despite races carried out at the critical temperatures of -25ºC for the electric powertrain, won immediately the 2018 championship ICE CHALLENGE in the innovative powertrain category, showing performances and reliability never seen for a brand new concept of car. The race car was equipped with a V6 3lt engine characterised by 340HP and an electric unit sporting 200kW. The total power of the car was 610HP, 960kg of weight with an overall consumption reduction of 15% and pollution reduction of 23%, in comparison with the best in class competitors.

The expected car targeted performances:

V8 bi-turbo engine, capable of 1100 hp and of a torque of 1300 Nm directly to the rear wheels through a specifically developed six-speed sequential gearbox and a (optional) future generation integrated electric engine, inverter, batteries and complex electronic management that will push extra 1000 HP and 1000Nm to the front wheels.  The Hypercar will destroy the 0-60 mph in only 1,5s seconds, reaching the speed of 250 mph (400km/h auto limited), also thanks to the four wheel drive traction and the  kerb weight of just 1350 kg. These performances will be achieved using aerospace light materials and technology and will permit to reduce the environmental impact of 35%. 

The incredible power will be controlled by brand new carbon-ceramic brakes concept, that, in collaboration with the electric engine, specifically developed, exploiting Motorsport technology, will permit to stop from 300 km/h to 0 in only 6 seconds and recover a big amount of energy that will be used to accelerate the car to the next turn, like it is happening in Formula 1 hers.

The car will also sport a range of 70 km in the centre of the cities in full electric mode, zero emissions.
