One of the surprises you can see at this year’s show is a Revenge Verde Supercar concept by Revenge Designs. The concept is built by Roush Performance and features a carbon fiber body, aluminum chassis and three engine options.
First one is a 605 hp crate engine by Ford Racing, then there’s the 630 hp LS9 engine(found in the Corvette ZR1) and finally a hybrid V8 engine built by Ohio based HP2G.
This V8 runs on E85 coupled with an electric motor. Combined power output is 400 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. Verde Design claims that the fuel milegage is over 100 mpg (2.2 l/100 km), which is very impressive and hopefully we can see them prove it in real life tests very soon.
0-60 mph is expected to be around 3-5 seconds depending on the engine and top speed over 200 mph. Prices start at $190,000 and if all goes as planned first cars should reach customers later this year.
