We’re no strangers to electric hyper cars. As most of you probably already know, the Rimac Concept_One developing 1088 horsepower from a purely electric powertrain is very much a real thing. In fact, it’s the fastest electric car ever made.
The sprint to 60 mph takes just 2.8 seconds and it will go on to a staggering 190 miles per hour. Not exactly slow then. Now however, there’s a new kid on the block, and the Rimac should be feeling frightened if it isn’t already.
Dubbed the Dendrobium, it’s as cool and unique as it is weird. We recently got a chance to view it at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, and needless to say, it caught us off-guard a bit. It looks rather catchy, but not that wildly different from most concepts present at Geneva.
The real feature which made it stand out were the upwards-reverse opening doors. Think of them as a mix between Lamborghini scissor doors and Rolls-Royce reverse-opening ones. No, really. Weirdest thing is they are completely functional.
Here are the headline stats: over 1000 bhp, a 0-60 mph time of just 2.6 seconds and a top speed somewhere north of 200 mph. Impressed yet? The thing is, we know electric hyper cars are coming relatively soon. After all, electric is the way forwards and the way of the future, so it only makes sense.
However, before we reach fully-functional electric hyper cars, we’ll have to go through a hit and miss process. Question now is, is the Dendrobium a hit or a miss?
