Today, the video evidence is available for all to see.  Enjoy the sounds of 1-MegaWatt of power delivered by four high-performance inboard motors and four individual gearboxes.


The EP9 and has a top speed of 194mph, reaching 124mph in 7.1 seconds and is available to buy for $1.48 million.  If you want one, you will have to be quick, as production is limited to just ten cars.
