A Ridiculous 1,340-HP Supercar Built to Go Off Road Actually Exists

We've got the video to prove it.

A visual designer once conjured a 1,500-horsepower Bugatti rally car concept that we couldn't stop staring at. The monster in the gallery above is a real working prototype. 

"XING Mobility's Miss R" is what company founder Royce YC Hong calls "the world's first rally-inspired electric supercar." Why electric? Allow him to explain in the video below: 

"The core idea behind the prototype is to achieve game-changing performance levels and driving experiences that are otherwise impossible to achieve in gasoline powered vehicles," Hong says.  

It worked. A huge advantage the Miss R has over combustion-powered vehicles is the fact that the state-of-the-art liquid-cooled battery pack can deliver 1,341 horsepower to the wheels instantaneously.

This yields hypercar-level performance specs—0 to 60 mph in 1.8 seconds and 0 to 125 mph in 5.1 seconds.

Its projected top speed should be around 170 mph, but again, it's a rally car designed to go off-road. We'd hate to see this thing wrapped around a tree. 

Precision handling is an absolute-must in anything packing this much power, which is why each wheel is operated by a completely independent motor. 

The Miss R's full speed test is forthcoming, and we can't freakin' wait. Stay tuned.
