Equipped with a 2.7 L Wankel rotary producing a theoretical 700 hp (552 kW) at 9,000 rpm, a 4-pole electric induction motor and regenerative braking to recharge the batteries, this lightweight / topless roadster epitomizes the long held motoring philosophy that, “less is more”.
With seating for two and what looks like a touch screen entertainment system a la the Nissan GT-R’s multifunction display, the Reptile would – if it existed – offer a fine balance between pure performance, creature comfort and environmental responsibility. Take for instance the rotary engine, which kicks in only when the Reptile’s put in RACE mode.
With looks to die for and a paint scheme possibly inspired by Fiat’s legendary Abarth models, the Reptile is sadly little more than a (very good) illustration. Check out our gallery below and leave your piece in the comments section.
