Another very fast and very expensive all-electric supercar dubbed the Drako GTE has arrived with eye-popping output. 

California startup Drako Motors unveiled what's being billed as the "most powerful GT car ever made" at Pebble Beach's Concours d'Elegance, where it was in the company of other headline-grabbing rides like Volkswagen ID. Buggy and the Bugatti Centodieci hypercar.

Four individual magnet hybrid synchronous motors crank out a a colossal 1,200 horses. If not the most powerful four-seater ever made, the Drako GTE is definitely up there.

Top speed is 206 mph, but no 60 mph sprint time was provided. A press release touts boasts a Nurburgring-developed, "industry-leading" torque vectoring technology, front splitter and rear diffuser, all of which will keep the EV glued to a track. 

While the GTE definitely has sporty DNA, it's still a luxury grand tourer designed primarily to keep its passengers comfortable. That said, not a lot of details were revealed about the cabin.

Per the aforementioned press release:  

GTE luxuriously accommodates four passengers and their luggage while providing ample legroom and easy ingress and egress.

The front and rear seats are designed with a blend of hand stitched leather and alcantara striking the perfect balance between extraordinary comfort and supportive bolstering for high performance driving.

To uniquely personalize GTE, owners can configure their car by selecting from a wide range of colors, materials and finishes.

Oh, and about that "expensive" part—each of the initial 25 Drako GTEs built will cost an absurd $1.25 million. 

Anyone interested in taking a test drive will have the opportunity to do so at a customer experience event in November. Visit Drako Motors' website to inquire about making a reservation.
