An extraordinary Chinese electric supercar

The 2019 Geneva Motor Show has made a surprise with the first appearance of the Koenigsegg Jesko supercar which has the ability to spit out up to 1,600 horsepower. But actually the Koenigsegg Jesko is not the only monster-powered car present in Geneva.

The Swedish super car is actually overshadowed by a Chinese branded car, Arcfox GT. Maybe you are not familiar with the name Arcfox. Naturally, because the name is indeed only known in the China region.

Moreover, Arcfox is one of the sports divisions under Beijing Electric Vehicle. Well, this Beijing Electric Vehicle is one of the programs owned by Chinese car manufacturers that is well known to many people, namely BAIC, a Chinese state-owned car company.

Back to Arcfox GT, which was able to overshadow the Koenigsegg Jesko car. The power of this car is indeed on par with the Koenigsegg Jesko. If the Koenigsegg Jesko has the ability to produce power up to 1,600 horsepower, Arcfox GT has the power of 1,609 horsepower.

The difference is, if the Koenigsegg Jesko produces that much power using a conventional V8 engine with a 5,000 cc cylinder capacity with dual turbo instead Arcfox GT purely produces that much amount of power from its electric motors.

Uniquely, Arcfox actually made two variants of this car. The first is the GT variant with 1,600 horsepower, another is the Street Edition variant with a maximum power of 1,009 horsepower.
This builds off a two-seat concept car Arcfox showed a few years ago (see one of them, Arcfox 7), and declares the GT ready for production.

Strangely, the company is building these Arcfox cars in Spain, where they're to be produced at the research and development center of the BAIC Group in Barcelona. And then where Arcfox will ultimately sell the GT is still unknown. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DAWN | AUTOBLOG]
