Introduced track electric roadster without a roof and doorsOctober 12, 2019
The Bulgarian company Kinetik Automotive demonstrated its own debut model – the electric speedster Kinetik 07, which is based on the Caterham chassis. The demonstration of the news was held at a special event in the Bulgarian capital Sofia.
The Kinetik 07 model is a traditional speedster, which has a small windshield for the driver and passenger, as well as massive protective arches behind the seats. Although the sports car was developed on a chassis from the British company Caterham, according to the manufacturer, 90% of the Kinetik 07 elements are completely original, in particular, body panels printed on a 3D printer. Kinetik 07 is primarily focused on the race track, however, it has a certificate for use on public roads.
Kinetik 07 has an electric motor with a capacity of 644 hp and 800 Nm of torque. The power reserve is currently not disclosed. A sports car can accelerate to 100 kph in 2.7 seconds. As emphasized by the founder of Kinetik Automotive, Theodosius Theodosiev, driving 07 is like “living in a different dimension, where other laws of physics apply.”
The company believes that Kinetik 07 has a number of advantages due to the software platform, which is fully developed by Kinetik Automotive. The configurations of the on-board electric vehicle system can be set individually for each individual client, and also personalize the interface.
The graphics on the dashboard of a sports car vary depending on the selected driving mode, while at the same time only the most important information is not displayed on it: on the track it is the calculation of lap time, maximum speed and engine functioning parameters, and at normal times – the estimated power reserve and battery charge .
Kinetik Automotive is about to enter the US market and then open a representative office in Monaco.
