Though it’s been a year since it launched, we just stumbled upon the Drako GTE electric car. What a machine. If looks could kill, then this would, if not, well the speed just might. Topping a little over 330 km/h courtesy of fully electric quad motors pushing over 1200 stallions. This pup has high numbers as you can see, and guess what, the price tag is high too $1.25 million as a matter of fact. Let’s see what that gets you.
The Drako GTE’s front fascia is dominated by three air intakes that are surrounded by full and continuous surfaces. Powerful, agile and firmly planted on the ground. A design that combines a muscular four-seater body with the elegance of a true GT car.
Exhilarating on Road and Track
With a fully electric quad motor architecture, Drako GTE generates a colossal 1,200 hp and 8,800 Nm of combined wheel torque for unrelenting acceleration up to a top speed of 330km/h. Each of GTE’s wheels are connected to an individual motor enabling unrivalled turning capability on any kind of road surface.
Equipped for Road and Track Performance
GTE is outfitted with top level components to enhance performance on both road and track. Öhlins four way adjustable suspension provides superior composure and ride quality for everyday driving, as well as full adjustability for the track. Front and rear carbon ceramic Brembo brakes deliver phenomenal stopping power without fade during prolonged performance driving.
Each of GTE’s quad motors is paired to an individual high capacity inverter specifically engineered for the endurance of extreme performance driving. With four independent inverters, Drako GTE precisely distributes a massive +225 kW to -225 kW range of potential power through each motor with millisecond speed and accuracy. This enables immediate response to every driver input with near zero latency.
Massively Parallel Cooled Battery
The Drako GTE’s battery was designed from the ground-up for megawatt power output as well as cooling capabilities to withstand track level performance on the world’s most challenging circuits. With 90 kWh of energy capacity and the ability to output 1,800 continuous and 2,200 peak amps, GTE’s battery is designed to supply GTE’s four motors with 900 kW of uninterrupted power. An internal massively-parallel cooling architecture integrates numerous cooling channels surrounding each individual battery cell to quickly dissipate heat lap after lap.
Dialed-In Driver Control
Drako’s driver-oriented Quattro Manettino consists of four console mounted switches to dial-in every aspect of the driving experience. Full control of torque vectoring and slip control, front to rear power distribution, and fine-grained regenerative braking control, allows drivers to adjust powertrain characteristics to match their driving style. The Quattro Manettino also provides the ability to select one of six road surface conditions – RACE, TRACK, DRY, RAIN, SNOW, ICE —optimizing GTE’s performance in every driving environment.
