A Chinese car company called Techrules has recruited Giorgetto Giugiaro, one of the finest car designers, to build a supercar that will make use of the Turbine Recharging Electric Vehicle (TREV) technology.

The TREV technology includes a micro turbine that can run on fuels like natural gas, biogas, petrol, diesel, and aviation fuel to generate enough electricity to recharge the car’s battery pack in about 40 minutes. This battery is linked to the six electric motors which help unleash all the power onto the wheels.

Techrules claims that this supercar weighs just 1,380kg, makes an astounding 1,030bhp, and can cover 2,000km on a single tank of aviation fuel! The company’s GT96 prototype was able to do the 0-100kmph sprint in just 2.5sec before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 350kmph.

Techrules showcased the AT96 and GT96 concepts at the Geneva Motor Show, and promised to make the car a reality in the next few years. However, Giorgetto and his son has recently been hired by the company so that the development of the car can be expedited. A production ready version of the GT96 is slated to be revealed at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, and Techrules is targeting a production capacity of 25 units a year to begin with.
