Karma Takes a Shot at the Tesla Roadster

To achieve such neck-snapping acceleration, the Karma SC2 Concept features front and rear electric motors. They combine to churn out 1,100 horsepower and an absolutely insane 10,500 lb.-ft. of torque. We’re entering a new era of vehicle performance, and it’s pretty awe-inspiring.

Range is estimated to be 350 miles with this car. Considering it doesn’t look to have much in the way of cargo space, that’s plenty. Carbon-ceramic brakes are included, but so is a push-rod racing suspension and a torque-vectoring gearbox. In other words, this car should be able to stick turns and isn’t just about straight-line acceleration.
