Techrules AT96 Supercar

If you’ve never heard of the Chinese automotive research and development firm Techrules, we’re not surprised. At the moment, the almost brand-new company doesn’t even have a functioning website. We assume that’s all going to change in the very near future, thanks to the unveiling of their AT96 and GT96 supercar concepts – a track model and road model, respectively – at the Geneva International Motor Show in March and their subsequent announcement of a partnership with lauded car designer Giorgetto Giugiaro to bring their cars to market.

Equipped with the company’s revolutionary turbine-recharging electric vehicle technology (TREV, for short) and fitted with six electric motors, this version – the AT96 – boasts 1,030 brake-horsepower, a range of 1242 miles per fill-up (using aviation fuel), a 0-62mph time of 2.5 seconds, and an unbelievable maximum torque of over 6,372 foot-pounds. And that’s all mounted in a carbon fiber monocoque with a dry weight of just 3042 lbs. And, though much of the technological claims sound too good to be true, Techrules does have a working prototype of this turbine-powered car – which can be seen in the video below – and are actively working toward producing a limited production run of some version of a TREV-powered vehicle.
