Last we heard from Dubuc Motors, it was trying to raise capital through a crowdfunding campaign for its wildly out-there Tomahawk electric supercar. Well, the company is still taking on investors, and has announced that the Tomahawk will go into production next year. Oh, and it does 0-60 miles per hour in 2 seconds.
With four electric motors, the all-wheel-drive EV produces 800 horsepower and a tarmac-warping 1,000 pound-feet of torque. It has a balanced, 50/50 front/rear weight distribution and adjustable air suspension, and it’ll pull a respectable 1.2 Gs in a corner. Its “demented acceleration,” as Dubuc Motors cofounder Mike Kakogiannakis so aptly describes it, is the highlight here. That two-second 0-60 time is available in the car’s Race mode. In Street mode, that sprint extends to four seconds.
If you’re concerned about driving range, you probably want to keep the launches to a minimum, but Dubuc says the Tomahawk’s 100-kWh lithium-ion battery will provide a driving range of 370 miles. That’s probably helped by its low weight, thanks to the car’s extensive use of carbon fiber and aluminum.
The Tomahawk combines performance with luxury with four leather racing seats, and leather and carbon fiber accents throughout the cabin. It has touchscreen navigation with mobile connectivity and hands-free controls. It also offers a live, 360-degree camera, collision avoidance, and automatic emergency braking.
No word yet on price, but for one of the fastest cars in the world, we doubt that your fuel savings from switching to electric will make up for whatever price premium the Tomahawk commands.
