What’s more, the company is now taking preorders for the vehicle and says cars can be delivered in as little as 18 months.
With a purported top speed of 488km/h and a claimed range of 1020km, the top spec RP5 variant can be secured in Europe for €1.5 million (approximately AU$2.45 million) – an astronomical sum considering no examples have yet been built, and there is absolutely no evidence to suggest the performance claims are possible with current battery technology.
Power will supposedly be sent to all four wheels via 24 individual electric motors (six on each corner of the car), while the suspension, brakes, active aerodynamics, air conditioning system, seats, and mirrors will be controlled autonomously.
In a continuation of implausible claims made to potential buyers and investors, the manufacturer also states that its 60kWh race battery pack can be charged from zero to 100 per cent in just 10 minutes.
If accurate – and that’s a big if – these specs would make the Arcanum the most powerful, efficient, fast, and technologically advanced production vehicle ever built.
The newest renders of the car show the interior covered with at least nine screens and, oddly for a hypercar, dual cup holders on the centre console.
The exterior looks suspiciously like a Lamborghini, however the designers claim this aesthetic was inspired by the "animal kingdom", "sharks", and "special aircrafts [sic] like F-117 Night Hawk, F-22 Raptor and SR-71 Blackbird."
