Kepler Motion: 200mph Hybrid Supercar


Last week at the Dubai International Motor Sow, the guys from Kepler introduced the Motion, equipped with what they call “dual powertrain” technology. This means the front wheels are powered by a 250hp electric motor while the rear wheels are driven by a 550hp Ford Ecoboost twin turbo V6. For the mathematically impaired, that’s a total of 800hp with AWD, enough to push the Motion to 60mph in less than 2.5 seconds with a top speed of 200hmph. Yikes!

Other supercar features include launch control, carbon fiber composite Monique chassis and body, active suspension and carbon ceramic brakes. Only fifty of the cars will be produced with delivery beginning in 2011.
