Unknown American company PSC Motors has released a sneak preview of their upcoming SP-200 SIN plug-in hybrid supercar.
Based in Las Vegas, PSC Motors wants to be a new sensation in the supercar business thanks to the SP-200 SIN currently in development and slated to come out in 2016. Power will come from a large 9.0-liter V8 naturally aspirated gasoline engine working together with a rear-mounted electric motor granting the vehicle with a combined output of 1,700 bhp (1,268 kW) channeled to the wheels through an 8-speed dual clutch transmission.
Thanks to this impressive (on paper) arrangement, the SP-200 SIN is expected to have stellar performances as the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint is targeted at 2.8 seconds while top speed is estimated to surpass the 280 mph (450 km/h) mark.
PSC Motors says the plug-in hybrid supercar will weigh 1,400 kg (3,086 lbs) and will have the following dimensions: 4.4 meters length, 2 meters width and just 1.1 meters tall, with a body made from carbon fiber composite and aluminum.
Production of the SP-200 SIN will be capped at 35 units and according to the company's chief executive officer Antonio Calva it will target the big boys such as Koenigsegg, Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren.
A full preview of the car will take place on Monday so stay tuned for additional details.
