They’re called Mean Metal Motors and this, the Azani, is set to be their first electric supercar and the numbers look incredible.
We’re talking 1,000 hp and 1,000 Nm and a 0 to 100 km/h time of under two seconds. The electric supercar’s top speed is even more impressive; estimated to be 350 km/h.
As the car isn’t officially launched yet mind you, the promises don’t stop there. It will supposedly come with Augmented Reality displays, and something called the Advanced Morphing seats. The former is self-explanatory while the latter is unlikely to involve morphine.
It will also have all the advanced driving aids available in most cars today such as adaptive cruise control, autonomous braking, and lane change alerts.
A quick browse through their website revealed even more innovative ideas for vehicle production, albeit in vague terms.
They include using organic composites, using one platform to build all types of vehicles to lower production costs, and a higher life cycle for its components. The last one, wow.
That’s not all. Production lines in their micro-factories will be incorporated with Artificial Intelligence. It’s said that AI’s adaptive abilities can increase production efficiency.
Pardon me for sounding so skeptical but looking at the figures, it’s hard not to wonder if it could all come true but it’s unlikely that MMM will have a short stint in the automotive production scene as they’ve been around for nearly 10 years now, since 2012. Everything from R&D, design, aerodynamics and engineering of the electric supercar is done in-house, by a 22-strong team.
MMM expects to sell the Azani for around USD 120,000 (approx RM506k).
