Battery power reaches a whole new level

Telsa was the last example of how battery power can be cool and fast at the same time when done correctly in a car, but now Bugatti say they're creating a prototype that runs entirely on batteries, and.. wait for it.. can produce 800bhp!! I really wonder how many batteries they have crammed into that car. Nonetheless, that is incredible.

The secret for all that immense amount of power lies in the powerful electric motors that the batteries are connected to. The advanced lithium-ion battery pack is fused with two crazy huge electric motors which produce 2,200Nm of torque from 0km/h. However, as all battery cars go, this one.. according to Bugatti, will last only a 'matter of minutes' and run out of juice. On the other hand, they say that this battery powered monster delivers 'absolutely unbelievable' acceleration that is unparalleled by other road going cars.

The sad part of this whole story is that the car has never been revealed to the public eye. So one can only dream about how it looks like. The one thing we know is that the chassis is believed to be based on the Bently Continental GT. One day this may make an appearance at a motor show, but one thing's for sure; Bugatti is withholding a ballistic electric car that's waiting to pounce..
