China's first turbine-engined supercar

When talking about supercars, then we would imagine Italy. But now China not to be outdone, a Chinese supercars named 'Techrules AT96 TREV and GT96 TREV' had just been born, though still concept cars. These supercar concepts have been appeared to the public for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show 2016.

The supercars introduced by a Chinese carmaker named Techrules claimed to have an extraordinary power, ie 1,030 bhp with a torque of 8,640 Nm. Thanks to the engine power, it only takes 2.5 seconds to reach 100 km/h and having a top speed of 350 km/h (limited electronically).

These supercars implemented the technology of Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle (TREV) to remain environmentally friendly. The technology has been patented by Techrules where the micro-turbine generate electricity to drive the car.

As quoted from Carscoops, the turbine engine requires 0.18 liters of fuel to generate electricity capable drove as far as 100 kilometers. Under conditions of the gas tank is full, this car can go up to 2,000 km. Means, this supercar requires only 3.6 liters of petrol to travel as far as 2,000 km. But unfortunately, the company does not mention the type of fuel used by the supercar.

According to them, the presence of these concepts is the first step towards the production of China's first supercars. A prototype was reportedly already started to be tested in February at Silverstone, England.
"TREV system is the perfect combination of micro-turbines and electric vehicle technology. It is very efficient to produce very low emissions and provide the optimum charging solutions for electric vehicles," said William Jin, founder and CEO of Techrules. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS]
