There are plenty of “unrealistically powerful” hypercars created by new companies from all over the world, but not many of them have actually surfaced. A new startup from Bulgaria has just announced the Alieno Arcanum, an all-electric, two-seat hypercar that can sprint at 488 km/h in its most powerful format.
Alieno was established in 2015 and Arcanum is the brand’s first model that will be available in four versions featuring different power levels, ranging from 2,610 hp to shockingly 5,221 hp. In the basic version, the electric car is powered by three motors on each wheel and 12 motors in total, while the most powerful RP5 (Raw Power 5) is powered by six motors on each wheel. Alieno develops its own battery packs ranging from 60-kWh to 180-kWh with graphene LiPo cells and supercapacitors, and the largest one can power a range of 1,020 km on a single charge.
Alieno also offers three modifications for all of the four variants: Street, Track and Race. The Street and Track modes are both self-explanatory. The Race configuration will be adhered to the LMP1 category of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, even though currently the class is not open to all-electric cars.
The company name take on U. S. military aircrafts such as the SR-71 Blackbird, F-22 Raptor and F-117 Night Hawk, as well as the helmet of Star Wars’ Darth Vader as design reference. However, it is difficult not to think of Lamborghini. The whole car is built from carbon fibre and features a carbon fibre monocoque and front- and rear-subframes.
