At this year's Geneva Motor Show, Techrules unveiled the single-seat, track-only Ren RS with 1,287 horsepower in its top trim. The powertrain allegedly combines six electric motors – two at the front axle and four at the rear – and two diesel-fueled turbines for powering the on-board generators.
The gargantuan figures and wild powertrain immediately suggest the Ren RS can't be real. However, Techrules has released photos showing the RS on track. Earlier concepts have at least been at the stage where they can go around a circuit, too.
Showing a moving test mule makes the firm's claims more credible. There's still a nagging question of whether the company can take the next step of transitioning its lofty claims into a fully functional road car.
