The Quant E-Sportslimousine is torquier than a tank and nearly as long

The best word to describe the NanoFlowcell QUANT E-sportlimousine is large – large in every way possible.

The wheelbase for the concept is 207 inches. That’s long enough to beat the leviathan Mercedes S-class by half an inch, leaving you with enough space to practically open a small office. The gull-wing doors measure an astounding 6.6 feet and the car measures in at 5,071 pounds with full fuel tanks.

Speaking of fuel, this monster won’t be stopping at any gas stations, but is instead powered by four electric motors. These motors put out an incredible 912 horsepower, but normally function at 644 hp so your chauffeur doesn’t shred the road during all your travels. As impressive as those horsepower figures might be, the really mind-blowing stat is the amount of torque this colossus puts down: 8,555 pound-feet. No, that’s not a typo, that’s the real number – and more torque than the M1 Abrams tank

While your mind wraps around that fact, the concept is said to be able to reach 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 236 mph.

The motors are powered by the company’s NanoFlowcell technology. How does it work? I’ll let the company do the explaining: “[It] works like a combination of a battery and a fuel cell using liquid electrolyte, which is kept in two tanks and pumped through the cell. At the heart of the system is a membrane that separates two differing chemistries. A controlled exchange of charges releases energy for the electric powertrain.” So in other words, it’s electric black magic.

The electric car has a fuel range of about 249-373 miles, when both fuel tanks are full. Deliveries for the road-going prototype are scheduled for later this year. You may look like a bigwig pulling up in a limo, but nothing says ‘I’ve arrived’ like massive gullwing doors.
