Farnova Othello: The Electric Hypercar Dream That Faded Before Launch

Whoooosh - In the ever-evolving landscape of the global automotive industry, China has taken center stage, not only as a mass producer but also as an innovator in the realm of electric vehicles. One notable player making waves in this shift towards sustainable transportation is Farnova Automotive, a Chinese electric car manufacturer that recently unveiled its ambitious creation – the Farnova Othello, a hypercar aiming to claim the title of the world's fastest electric vehicle.

The collaboration, as reported by Autoevolution, lays the groundwork for the production of a limited quantity of Othello hypercars – a mere 200 units. Priced at CHN ¥1,86 million per unit (approximately Rp. 4.1 billion), the Othello is positioned in a league that rivals the iconic Ferrari F8 Tributo.

Underneath the sleek exterior lies a powerhouse driven by two electric motors, delivering a formidable four-wheel-drive experience. The Othello boasts a 75 kWh battery sourced from Swedish manufacturer Northvolt, promising an exhilarating driving experience with an astounding 1,860 horsepower and an extraordinary torque of 12,000 Nm. Meanwhile for mileage, the Othello electric-powered hypercar is capable of going as far as 600 kilometers in just single one charge.
Farnova Othello has a dry weight of 1,350 kilograms, can be accelerated from 0 to 100 kph in just 1.9 seconds, then reach 300 kph in 8.5 seconds and its top speed reaches 420 kph. (Picture from: Autoevolution)
With such impressive numbers on paper, the Farnova Othello is not just a stylish hypercar but a force to be reckoned with on the road. The electric marvel accelerates from 0 to 100 kph in a jaw-dropping 1.9 seconds, reaching 300 kph in a mere 8.5 seconds, and topping out at an impressive 420 kph. This remarkable performance, if validated, would make the Othello the fastest electric car globally, narrowly surpassing the previous record-holder, the Rimac Nevera, with its 1,914 hp drivetrain.

Nevertheless, at this juncture, the Farnova Othello is not merely a production-ready vehicle; it stands as a tantalizing prototype. Enthusiasts and industry observers are eagerly anticipating updates on its official production, slated to commence in 2022. The path to revolutionizing the electric hypercar market is paved with lofty expectations for the Farnova Othello, and we await the next chapter in this electrifying journey with bated breath.😝
Unfortunately, to date, no information has surfaced regarding the current status of this electric supercar, and the manufacturer's website is now inactive (due to some financial reasons, as stated by the Hongkong Stock Exchange). It appears that the realization of the Farnova Othello's potential to redefine the boundaries of speed and innovation in the electric car landscape is currently just a dream.😉 *** [EKA [25012022] | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | FARNOVAGP | AUTOEVOLUTION | CARNEWSCHINA ]
