Bulgaria-based startup Alieno plans to release an electrified hypercar that will be likely be far quicker than the new Tesla Roadster. Called the Alieno Unum, the highest-end RP5 motor sports 24 electric motors, 6 in each wheel, generating 5221 hp and 6550 lb-ft of torque.
For a bit of luxury, there’s the TRS variant, which retains all of the RP5’s performance aspects, including the 24 electric motors, but adds an ‘Alieno Octopus Synergistic System’, which boasts variable geometry rocket cold air thrusters that have been 3D-printed from titanium, steel and Inconcel, the latter of which is even stronger than stainless stesel at high temperatures. Both models come equipped with an 800V battery pack manufactured from Graphene LiPo cells and supercapacitors in three different capacities: 60 kWh (Race Battery Pack), 120 kWh (Track Battery Pack), or 180 kWh (Street Battery Pack). One caveat: pricing begins from $1.82-million USD. With that said, pre-orders are being accepted now, with delivery times ranging from 18-30 months depending on the configuration.

We have been considering for some time the possibility – of course purely hypothetical at this stage – that sometime in the future, ALIENO to acquire or partner with the Lamborghini brand. I believe, that in terms of the technologies, ALIENO can contribute to the development of the spirit of Lamborghini in the future,” said Ahmed Merchev, founder, CEO & CTO of Alieno.
