Technicar will bring forth Italy’s first electric supercar with 800 ponies in tow

It’s not a Lamborghini or a Ferrari that will tap into Italy’s premiere electric supercar. In fact this good looker by startup firm, Technicar, is sure to grab a set of eyeballs of its own. While the biggies in the supercar game are obsessing about their hybrids, they wouldn’t like venturing into the space of a complete electronic car. The Lavinia SE matches its performance to the dashing, very supercar-ish good looks. It promises to conjure up to 800HP of power and go from still to 62MPH in just 3.5 seconds. Now, if you’re into cars you would have already recalled that this is just a little behind a Ferrari 458 Italia.

Braking is taken care of by high-performance ceramic brakes. Like a true native of Sicily this little olive of a supercar is not yet ripe enough for public visual consumption. So what we do have as a reference is this 3D rendition of the car.

The Tesla D, which doesn’t have half the swag as the Lavinia SE demands $120,000 for starts. But really, who’s looking at numbers when we’re picking an Italian electric supercar?
