Protoscar has presented its Lampo at the Geneva Motor Show

In January we have first spoken about Protoscar Lampo. It was a 268 bhp convertible Swiss two-seater with two electric engines, produced by BRUSA, each of them installed in one of the car axles, front and rear. Both of them can produce 440 Nm of torque from 0 to 5,000 rpm. What the car did not have at that time was an official appearence. Now it does.

Lampo is 4.32 m long, 1.87 m wide, 1.20 m tall and has a wheelbase of 2.42 m. It weighs 1,650 kg with its full load and uses 18-inch wheels, with 245/45 R18 tyres. Able to reach 200 km/h of top speed and to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 5 s, the car is fully powered by electricity. Its batteries take 12 hours to charge in a common house electricity inlet and can make the car run for up to 200 km.

As we have told you before, the car will not be mass-produced, what will surely frustrate all its fans. Especially now, with a face to miss.
