With the world going green and the automotive marketplace folloing suit, the Los Angeles based car builder Velozzi has big plans for the future when they announced their intentions to market their first electric super car as well as an all electric crossover catering to upscale environmentally conscious clientele. "The first electric super car with a 65-kilowatt microturbine will be available in late 2010. The SOLO crossover, featuring a 30-kilowatt Capstone microturbine, will be available in 2011,...The selling price for both vehicles is to be determined," according to the automaker’s CEO, Roberto Velozzi.

Just because the Velozzi Supercar will be green, don’t count out its performance potential, powered by a AC induction electric motor that is charged by an on board Capstone C65 microturbine, the gas/electric super car power train combination is good for a total of 700 HP which will allow it to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in just three seconds and reach a top speed of over 200 MPH, guaranteeing its place among super car competitors.

Stay tuned for more details!

What is up with all the supercars nowadays? I mean aren’t there any other design for them? It’s almost the same look and same design. What differs later on is the interior and what is under the hood.

The front looks like ferrari 360 modena which make it seems boring to me, the rear side is good though & I like how they made the spoiler, also the car name seems interesting (Velozzi) what a name! I hope this car can do well, still we have to wait for more infos.

It’s front seems to look like a Ferrari car, the side and the rear though is nice. I like the lines that runs from the side to back. It is continues line. Wonder if that continues line works as a spoiler for the car.

The Capstone microturbines were really designed for co-generation in buildings, with the heat being as important as the electricity produced, so they weren’t optimized for weight or fuel efficiency, and it certainly wouldn’t be a good choice for a vehicle.
