If ever there were a vehicle to arise from left field, the Quant e-Sportlimousine would be it. Digging in the archives reveals the car’s origins starting in 2003 as the brainchild of the La Vecchia brothers. Several prototypes were built, including one that was seen at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2010, but success hadn’t been ultimately achieved. That is, perhaps, until now.

Staring a proprietary battery-powered drivetrain, the e-Sportlimousine makes its debut at the 2014 Geneva show with the intent of revolutionizing the industry. It sounds easier than it likely is, but upon inspection of its nanoFLOWCELL powerplant, it just might have a shot. It’s a 912-horsepower electric car.

The heart of the car utilizes a three-tank system that stores two types of liquid electrolytes — one positively charged, the other negatively. The liquids are circulated through the center tank; a battery-like cell with a membrane separating it into two halves. An electrical charge is generated from that membrane as the two liquids swirl on either side of it. The system generates enough power to propel the car from zero to 62 mph in a staggering 2.8 seconds and over a total range between 248 and 372 miles.

It’s obvious from the pictures the e-Sportlimousine isn’t just a boxy, test-mule science project – no, its quite the looker. The car is a substantially long, measuring 17.2 feet. It’s wide as well, measuring 7.2 feet across and its unique gull-wing doors are nearly 6 feet in length. Needless to say, this is a big car. But can its size be an indicator of how huge its technology will be to the automotive world? Click past the jump for what we know.
