A stunning American electrical GT car was revealed

As was stated In the previous article, there's an American startup company wants to launch an electric-powered supercar. This zero emissions supercar will be launched at the Monterey Car Week 2019 in Pebble Beach, California.

And the company, named after its co-founder Dean Drako, turned out to be on time to fulfill its promise. On Friday morning at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering during Monterey Car Week 2019, the company unveiled its striking new all-electric supercar which is given the simple name Drako GTE.

And whatever your feelings regarding its exterior styling, the GTE is a supercar powered by four electric motors, which altogether able to spew out 1,200 horsepower and 6,490 lb-ft of torque. With a maximum torque differential between each wheel set to 3245 lb-ft, the company brags the GTE is able to precisely rotate and corner like no other car.

Yes, the car uses four permanent-magnet hybrid synchronous motors (225 kW/302 hp each) to produce that 1,200 hp of power so able to make the car speeding up to reach top speed of 206 mph. Beside that on the car also has Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes and Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires to support its extreme performance.

The car's performance figures mentioned above were made possible by the incorporation of Drako DriveOS, a software system that that replaces conventional mechanical axle differentials with computer-managed four-wheel torque vectoring; so that the motors mounted on each wheel can be controlled instantly and independently for maximum traction, stability, and handling responsiveness. The entire system is controlled by a single ECU, making it far less complex than computer networks in most modern vehicles today.
Drako Motors plans to build GTE only 25 examples starting at $1.25 million apiece with deliveries expected to begin in 2020. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/309RJxi)
That car unveiled after roughly six years of development, is based on a Fisker Karma platform, but every panel except the doors is new. Indeed, the sensuous lines of the carbon-fiber bodywork were penned by Lowie Vermeersch (ex-Pininfarina design director) who has been owned a design house in Turin, named GranStudio. But what lies underneath—namely, an innovative battery, four electric motors, and that proprietary Drako DriveOS software to run it all—truly sets this new supercar apart.

At this point, this road-going hypercar with accommodations for four people uses a 90 kWh battery holds the power, and it’s capable of fast recharging through 150 kW outlets. Drako, however, seems more interested in sharing the GTE's admittedly impressive track performance, because we aren’t given stats on range or recharge time.
Honestly, such things probably won’t matter to GTE buyers. The company plans to build just 25 models at $1.25 million each, with deliveries expected to begin in 2020. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DRAKO MOTORS | RIDE | MOTOR1 | MOTORTREND | FORBES]
