With all-electric cars becoming the norm, many manufactures are trying to tap into the all-electric performance car market. At the Paris Auto Show in 2014, Lamborghini released the Asterion, the first supercar of its kind with a 900HP all-electric motor; not really what we are used to seeing from the beefy Italians. The Asterion reaches 0-62 mph in an Astounding 3.0 seconds flat, those are numbers that beg attention.

The American company Renovo has been silently but diligently working on their supercar since 2010. The finished product is the Renovo coupe, the reason it looks familiar is because it is based off the Shelby Daytona, other than how it looks the Renovo coupe couldn’t be farther away from its Shelby Doppelganger. The electric charged motor puts out  500hp and an astounding 1,000 ft-lb torque, which is good enough to push this beast to 60 in 3.4 seconds.

CEO Christopher Heiser wanted a chassis that could handle the performance as well as have classic American styling. The lithium ion battery used to power the Coupe has brand new patent-pending technology with a focus on weight distribution, as well as a recharge time of 30 minutes for a fast DC charge or five hours for a level 2 charge.  With deliveries starting this year,be sure to keep an eye out for them on the streets, and even the strips.
