The Renovo Electric Coupe – Available for only $530k

Last  weekend’s Concurs d’Elegant at Pebble Beach caused a stir, since the highly-rumored, but never seen Renovo Coupe Supercar, hit the street.

The cutting-edge sportscar, based on a beefed up, yet still classic Shelby Daytona CSX9000 Coupe, is all-electric, and touts a respectable top speed at around 120 mph, plus a 0-60 time of just above 3 seconds.

The product’s genesis started four years ago when a group of Silicon Valley performance wonks decided to see if they could take a serious ICE-powered race car and turn it into a buzz bomb, and the result is as startling as it’s interesting. According to Renovo CEO Christopher Heiser, “Renovo Motors sought to create an aspirational vehicle that demonstrates the performance, control, and excitement that is possible with EV technology.

We have poured our passion and innovation into the Coupe in an effort to deliver a truly amazing driving experience, and we we’re honored to present the Production Prototype of our car at the Concours d’Elegance.”

Clearly these guys have got something going on here, since in electrified terms the car delivers about 500 HP from its 740 volt energy (373 kW), while delivering 1000 lbs-ft (1354 Nm) of torque.  Along with the car’s obvious grunt, luxury appointments abound which of course would make sense, because the new variant is intending to go head-to-head with more established Supercar marques like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Pagani and Koenigsegg.

The weekend’s festivities marked the launch of the car, and given the audience for Pebble’s annual bash it undoubtedly garnered more than just one new order by the end of the weekend. Stay tuned to learn more about this innovative integration between history and cutting-edge technology, because the car’s ultimate evolution ought to be worth at least the price of a ticket.
