Hennessey maps out new six-wheel drive electric hypercar

It’s been given the working title “Project Deep Space,” and Hennessey says it’ll be the world’s most expensive electric vehicle at $3 million

Hennessey has launched very early plans for its brand-new electrical hypercar: a six-wheel drive, 2,000 bhp, four-seat gran tourer codenamed Job Deep Space.

When it goes on sale in 2026, it’ll be the globe’s most pricey electric automobile, with a price-tag of $3 million (₤ 2.2 million). Production will certainly be restricted to just 105 examples.

We’ve just got a couple of sketches to go off for the time being, yet Hennessey ensures us that the Job Deep Space will certainly be “devastatingly rapid”. The business additionally claims that the cars and truck’s unusual twin axle rear end will give tonnes of grip, as the added 2 wheels provide a half boost in surface call contrasted to a standard four-wheeled supercar.

John Hennessey, the American business’s chief executive officer as well as founder, stated: “Hennessey has spent more than 30 years developing some of the fastest and most exciting cars worldwide. This rule will certainly continue for our following 30 years by presenting the world’s initial fully energized, six-wheel-drive hyper-GT.

He proceeded, providing a glance at the hyper GT’s performance capacity, claiming: “Our team believe that ‘Deep Space,’ with 6 electrical motors combined with 6 driven wheels, could be the globe’s quickest increasing four-seater from absolutely no to 200 mph!”

To make up for the extra weight caused by the 6 electrical motors, (as well as, no question, a huge battery pack to power them all), the Deep Room’s body as well as chassis will certainly be made entirely from carbon fiber. It’s an one hundred percent clean-sheet design, too– nothing will be carried over from the brand name’s previous hypercar, the 1,817 bhp petrol-powered Poison F5.

The Deep Room will not just succeed at the drag strip, nonetheless– Hennesey asserts it’s being designed as an everyday workhorse. It states the vehicle will certainly have adequate travel luggage space to carry 4 collections of golf clubs, as well as adequate area inside to seat four adults, although they’ll be placed in an unusual diamond-shaped pattern.

The chauffeur sits in the middle of the cabin, like a McLaren F1, with a guest seat resting either side of their shoulders. At the back, there’s a fourth chair, which Hennessey says will be the world’s very first VVIP (that’s Really Very Important Person) automobile seat. Primarily, it’ll be a lie-flat seat, like you ‘d locate in a personal jet.

The final version of Deep Space will certainly be developed at Hennessey’s production centre in Sealy, Texas– and the company has actually gotten the help of prominent business for the task. It has actually already partnered with the likes of Covering, Pennzoil as well as Delta Cosworth to establish the vehicle’s electric powertrain.

Project Deep Space creates part of Hennessey’s brand-new item plan that will see the firm launch 3 brand-new automobiles over the following 10 years. Details of the other 2 models are yet to be released, but we anticipate they’ll be validated in the following number of years.
