“Automobili Estrema claims that this pack not only has a 100 kWh capacity, but will also (ONE Doubles Tesla Model S Range to Over 700 Miles With Gemini Battery) have an energy density of around 227 Wh/lbs thanks to weighing only 661.39 pounds. The whole car—with the battery pack installed—will also only weigh around 3,300 pounds, meaning the battery is only about 20 percent of the Fulminea's total weight. The rest? Each wheel will be driven by a single motor, much like the Rivian R1T is, the quad-motor setup results in 2,040 hp, so Automobili Est claims the all-electric hypercar will hit 200 mph in less than 10 seconds. [325mile range]”

3300lbs is amazing for a battery/car. If this is true it’s kind of earth shaking.

What is earth shaking is the ONE Gemini battery! Take a min to read that article ONE Doubles Tesla Model S Range to Over 700 Miles With Gemini Battery Besides the doubling of output/range, the materials they are using are less expensive (NO Cobalt!) & that they can use recycled Li is a game changer....
That you have a car with range greater than the average mclaren, and weighs what the average mclaren weighs, and oh yea, has 2000+HP. That's a new thing if it actually exists: an electric car that's as light as some of the lightest super cars on the market.

I have my doubts that this is legit, but if it is, I havent heard of anything comparable. If you know of something, please share. The Tesla is way over 4000lbs.
