Atelier Pininfarina together with the Hong Kong company Hybrid Kinetic Group prepared a prototype of a five-meter coupe with a hybrid power plant with an output of 802 horsepower. The concept car was shown at the Geneva Motor Show.

The prototype power unit, called the HK GT, consists of four electric motors connected to two-stage transmissions, a 20-kilowatt-hour battery pack, and a microturbine generator used to charge the batteries.

The cruising range of the concept car is 993 kilometers. The batteries are also charged from the kinetic energy recovery system.

From a place to a hundred kilometers per hour all-wheel drive, 1860-pound Pininfarina HK GT accelerates in 2.9 seconds. The maximum claimed speed of the prototype is 250 kilometers per hour.

The list of equipment of the prototype includes huge wings of the “gullwing” type, which give access to both rows of seats, a digital instrument panel, a retractable screen in front of the passenger, and four separate seats.

This is not the first collaboration between Pininfarina and the Hybrid Kinetic Group. In March 2017, the company introduced the concept sedan H600, and in April – prototypes of crossovers, called K550 and K750. All of them were equipped with power plants with microturbine generators.
