Drako Motors is the most recent EV-maker to enter the scene, and while the Silicon Valley-based brand hasn’t put out a production car yet, it has plans to hit the ground running with this four-passenger luxury car.  

Luckily, that car will allegedly have a helluva stride.

Drako says its GTE will use four electric motors to make a combined 1,200 horsepower and 6,491 lb.-ft. of torque, and employ that twist to get it up to a top speed of 216 mph (332 km/h).

The EV newcomers teased the car with a photo and a 10-second clip showing the same image and a date: 08.16.19.

There isn’t much more known about the Drako GTE yet, other than the very-hard-to-believe ludicrous numbers and the fact that it set a lap record for electric vehicles at the Nürburgring in 2015 with a time of 7 minutes 49.04 seconds.

As for its styling, Drako promises the car will offer luxurious “iconic Italian design” and enough room for four passengers and their luggage.

The Drako GTE will make its public debut at the eclectic automotive gathering known as The Quail, in Monterey, this August.
