Quimera AEGT01, the "most powerful electric car on earth," could spawn TTXGP-related series

Quimera AEGT01, the "most powerful electric car on earth," could spawn TTXGP-related series

hi all, I work for quimera and i had the chance to witness the car running at motorland racetrack. the gearbox was absolutely intact after the test. range is 20min at full power and some 10 more minutes in the "endurance" mode (that reduces peak power by 40%). the most powerful electric car is an overall consideration with no particular focus on acceleration or top speed that can be beaten by a dragster ev car. and yes, making a proper racing gearbox (in this case a 6 speed hewland ngt) work with electric engines IS a huge deal. just try to manage that amount of torque combined with the inertia of 3 electric engines delivering 700bhp at peak power and you'll realize how challenging making it work has been. it's the most powerful gt spec car and the only one with such a proper race gearbox
