ROCKVILLE, Maryland – Genovation Cars has claimed for its 2019 GXE all-electric supercar a speed record faster than the one it previously held.
The world record was recorded, witnessed and certified by the International Mile Racing Association (IMRA) with Johnny Bohmer driving during straight-line aerodynamic testing at the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida. The speed: 338km/h.
Andrew Saul, CEO of Genovation Cars, told The Corner in a media release: “During testing we broke our speed record that was set in 2016. This is testament to Genovation’s philosophy of continuous improvement that guides everything we do to enhance the capabilities of the GXE.
“It’s gratifying for the Genovation team to see the result of thousands of hours spent refining and testing the car.”
MANUAL OR AUTO – YOUR CHOICE
The GXE was designed from the ground up to have a low centrer of gravity and near 50/50 weight distribution; ”a true driver’s car”, the company says, adding that the GXE has a programmable active suspension, carbon ceramic Brembo brakes, carbon-fibre wheel rims, ultra high-fidelity 10-speaker JBL stereo, and a 26cm high-definition touchscreen.
Though all-electric, the car can have either a seven-speed manual – an all-electric supercar category exclusive, its maker says – or an eight-speed paddle-shift auto transmission.
Driven normally, the Genovation GXE’s range can exceed 280km (fully charged).
The car will have a limited run of 75 units with deliveries from early 2020.
