This new prototype from the ABT dungeons produces an enormous 1,018 horsepower and 1,291 Nm of torque. To keep the weight down of the four door saloon, ABT have developed a clever system: underneath the hood sits a 730 HP petrol engine, and an electric motor capable of producing 288 HP and 317 Nm as of 100km/h.
In simple terms, this implies that the car can get the power down at idle from its main engine, and will receive a temporary boost from the electric motors once the 100km/h is reached. Because the electric motor is only used to supplement the combustion engine at speed, ABT succeeded in fitting a compact 13.6 kWh to the drivetrain.
For starters the 0-100 km/h sprint is accomplished in merely 3.3 seconds. The boosted 4.0-liter V8 keeps the fun going up to 320 km/h. Wow, all this and it is still a family car that easily completes family vehicle duties.
