The NextEV electric supercar shows off its skills while testing on the Nurburgring in Germany.
Up-and-coming Chinese automaker NextEV has teased us in the past with renderings and sketches of its proposed 1 MegaWatt supercar. And just recently, the vehicle was caught testing at an undisclosed track in the U.K. Now we have an even better look at the electric two-door thanks to some new footage of it running around the Nurburgring.
Seen here in a short clip, the 1 MegaWatt supercar shows off its futuristic design and electric powertrain as it blasts around the circuit shooting some promotional footage. The footage will likely be used in the upcoming launch in the next few months.
From the video, we can see that the vehicle will feature some very typical supercar lines, a low center of gravity, an aggressive fascia, and a massive rear wing. The rear three-quarters and side panels, though, do give the 1 MegaWatt a more distinctive look.
The car is expected to feature 1,360 horsepower under the hood, a 0-100 kilometre per hour (0-62 mile per hour) time of under three seconds, and a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph), not to mention the inclusion of things like gullwing doors and an advanced interior.
With an estimated price tag of close to $1M (approx. $1.34M CAD), and production capped at just six units, the 1 MegaWatt was built as a sort of test bed for the company’s battery technology. The electric components found on the supercar will then eventually trickle down into more affordable mass-market vehicles, as well as autonomous technology the company is currently testing. That autonomous tech, though, won’t be found on this supercar.
Right now, this video remains our best look yet at the NextEV 1 MegaWatt until it officially debuts in the next few months.
