B islang, the small sports car manufacturer Ariel scored points with extreme athletes like that Atom, the motorcycle Ace and the off-road athlete Nomad. From 2019 the British want to play with the really big super athletes. A two-seater with electric drive and range extender is planned. After the presentation of the first pre-series model, small series production is to start in 2020.

Up to 880 kW and 1,800 Nm

As key data for the super sports car, which is being developed under the project name Hipercar, Ariel names 880 kW output, a maximum torque of 1,800 Nm as well as a top speed of 257 km /h and a sprint time of almost 2.5 seconds.

Embedded in a 750-volt architecture, the Hipercar uses lithium-ion batteries with 42 or 56 kWh capacity . A 35 kW microturbine is used as a range extender for longer tours.

The chassis of the Hipercar is formed from glued aluminum elements. At the front and rear, aluminum subframes hold the axles and assemblies. The independent wheel suspensions all around rely on fully adjustable spring elements. For the gear train, forged aluminum rims or carbon wheels in 20 and 21 inches are provided. 265/35 tires rotate at the front, 325/30 rollers at the rear. These are driven by wheel hub motors with input gears, each with 220 kW and 450 Nm. The 2- and 4WD versions offer power of 440 kW and 900 Nm and 880 kW and 1,800 Nm.

The final design of the Hipercar is still in development. Ariel boss Simon Saunders is also still covered when it comes to the price. The Hipercar will definitely be more than competitive and cost significantly this side of a million pounds.
