A new Italian smart hybrid supercar with high performace

High-performance cars today do not only rely on conventional large-capacity engines or turbo devices. With the development of technology, now to boost the performance of the car can also be done by pinning an electric motor. As a result, the marriage between the combustion engine and the electric motor in hybrid technology is capable of producing high-performance cars.

A manufacturer of sports car specialists from Naples, named Puritalia recently released a wild sports car at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. The car is called Puritalia Berlinetta which can produce the power nearly 1,000 horsepower!

Not just conventional hybrids, Puritalia Berlinetta also carries plug-in hybrid technology. That is, the battery to supply electricity can be charged with a home plug and can be driven in fully electric mode. The electric motor comes from the British company named Yasa.

This car combines a 5,000 cc V8 engine in front with an electric motor that drives the rear wheels. The V8 engine itself has 750 horsepower while the electric motor has 215 horsepower and a maximum torque of 370 Nm. When combined with an electric motor on the rear wheels, the total power reaches 951 horsepower with a maximum torque of 1,248 Nm. Those numbers are fairly wild and savage for a sports car.

Then to drive the car, the engine's power is mated to a seven-speed transmission that can be operated through the paddle shift behind the wheel. The combination of the engine, electric motor and its transmission makes the car accelerate from 0-100 kph in 2.7 seconds. The maximum speed is even up to 335 kph. The car's electric power is stored in lithium iron phosphate chemistry batteries. The battery is stored under the trunk and behind the seat. The battery charging is only three hours and in full electric driving mode, the car can be reaching a distance of 20 km.

Hybrid systems are controlled by special software that utilizes artificial intelligence. To determine the optimal use of a hybrid system, the driving style of the driver is recorded. Real time data about traffic, weather, road conditions also included there. The most efficient use of energy is calculated from a large amount of data in the cloud on the server. The results are then transferred back to the car.

In driving with this car, the driver can choose Sport, Corsa, and e-Power modes. Amazingly, this car can provide a power boost by lifting its electric motor torque to a maximum (370 Nm) just by pressing the eMozione button, so that the driver can feel the sensation of driving the car in its peak performance for 45 seconds.
