The California company RAESR (Rice Advanced Engineering Systems & Research) has designed and built the hypercar Tachyon Speed, equipped with special technologies.
Tachyon Speed is only 40.5 “(1028.7 mm) heigh and 81” (2057.4 mm) wide, equipped with 6 electric motors capable of delivering a power of 1200 HP, with double-hinged front and rear doors and a jet-fighter style canopy.
The Tachyon Speed is an electric hypercar developed from scratch for maximum performance on road and track.
New generation EV technology
Rice Advanced Engineering Systems and Research (RAESR) is a high-end automotive design and technology startup dedicated to creating an exclusive number of hand-built electric and hybrid-electric hypercars.
Tachyon Speed is the result of many years of research and development on high-performance electric propulsion systems, state-of-the-art prototyping processes and several studies of energy storage systems.
The design and design work of Tachyon Speed started in southern California in the summer of 2012 with the mission of bringing to reality a new generation electric hypercar, meticulously designed and built with the aim of producing a new class of cars that presents unprecedented driving experience in conventional formats of internal combustion engines (ICE).
The car was born from a modular design philosophy that facilitates customization and allows the creation of new platforms based on advanced systems.
RAESR makes available on request the Powertrain and the batteries inspired by the RAWR Tachyon Speed, also providing design and prototyping services on request.
