(DailyMail)– When Elon Musk revealed the world’s fastest production car last week, it wowed the automotive world and was hailed as the world’s fastest production vehicle.
But a Taiwanese firm has revealed a new car that could beat it – just.The ‘Miss R’ 1,000-kilowatt (1,341-hp) electric on-road/off-road supercar will be able to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 1.8 seconds – a tenth of a second faster than Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster.
However, the firm behind it, Xing Mobility says production will be limited to 20 – and each car will cost $1m.The firm hopes the car will prove the performance and reliability of its electric powertrain systems.
‘While the Tesla Roadster aims to achieve an experience based on existing sportscar ideals on the road, XING Mobility designed Miss R with an entirely different aspiration: reaching unthinkable performance capabilities on-road, on-track and off-road, and achieving the kind of versatile driving experience that has never been available to drivers before,’ the firm said.
‘Miss R is the embodiment of the paradigm shift of EVs surpassing traditional combustion-engine cars in both performance and capability, ‘ said XING Mobility’s Co-founder and CEO, Royce YC Hong.
‘The core idea behind the prototype is to achieve game-changing performance levels and driving experiences that are otherwise impossible to achieve in a gasoline-powered vehicle.’
