This track-focused car is also street-legal, but costs close to half-a-million dollars!

The mainstream automotive market had a lot of big players, and it was close to impossible for new automakers to rise from the ground. But, the EV-olution has changed this. It allowed for a lot of new startups to venture into this world. Companies like Rivian, Lordstown, Bollinger, and even Fisker, to an extent, could get some limelight because of electrification.

There seems to be no end to this because a Spanish automaker called Baltasar has come up with an electric track car called the Revolt that looks swell and has some interesting specs and features.

Carbon-Fiber Body Makes It Quite Light

The Revolt is mainly composed of carbon fiber and weighs a shade under 1,700 pounds

. It will be offered in 16 different exterior shades, and I have to say, it looks quite good in all of them. On the inside, it features a driver-oriented cockpit design. There are bucket seats made of carbon fiber, a small screen for the basic functionalities, and a removable steering wheel. No extra shenanigans whatsoever. The charging port on this “purest electric track day car” is placed on the dash on the passenger side. Okay, but why?

2.5 Seconds To 62 mph Is Impressive

The Revolt comes with a dual-motor setup, with each one is mounted on one rear wheel. This makes it a rear-wheel-drive vehicle. The power output is rated at 500 horses and 738 pound-feet of torque.

Baltasar has mentioned that the car takes just 2.5 seconds to sprint to 62 mph from rest.

Thanks to the rear-wheel motor setup, it comes with torque vectoring. To counter range anxiety in a way, Baltasar has given you the option to set the level of regenerative braking using a dial placed on the left of the steering wheel. It features Eco, Practice, Race, and Qualifying drive modes.

TopGear has reported that Baltasar has built everything in-house and the Revolt is developed from the ground up.

The body is made of carbon fiber, but the suspension is made from aeronautical aluminum and Kevlar.

Being a track-focused car, the chassis has been built in a way that it conforms to the FIA safety regulations.

The battery is the only thing the company has outsourced from Millor, a Spanish high-performance battery maker. It is a 700-volt, mid-mounted pack that weighs around 550 pounds. It offers a range of 373 miles when driven sedately, or about 40 minutes of fun track time before you’ll have to plug it in. When plugged into a DC fast-charging station, the battery can add 62 miles of range in just five minutes.

It Costs A Bomb!

The Baltasar Revolt will not come cheap. The company is asking €230,000 for this lightweight, rear-wheel-drive track car that is also street-legal. This translates to approximately $278,000 as per the exchange rates at the time of writing this article. The automaker is accepting reservations and you can place your reservation by paying a deposit of €1,000. The first deliveries of this hand-made car will begin in the second half of 2022.
