Kepler Motors thinks its first supercar, the Motion Hybrid, has it all. Unveiled in 2009, Kepler Motors has been quietly working on its super-lightweight hybrid for nearly three years. Now, the company has released its first official videos of the car in action:
Like many other hybrid supercars being developed by luxury and prestigious automakers, the Motion is a through-the-road hybrid, combining a traditional mid-mounted, rear-wheel drive gasoline engine, and all-electric front axle.
Power to the rear wheels is rated at 550 horsepower, thanks to the same Ford-built, 3.5-liter, twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6 engine found in cars like the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO.
Front-wheel power is provided courtesy of twin electric motors, which Kepler says produces a total of 250 horsepower (around 186 Kilowatts).
With so much sheer torque and power, it’s no surprise that the Kepler Motion’s claimed 0-60 time is a mere 2.5 seconds, while top speed is listed as being “200mph+.”
