They call it “The Thing” and the BMW Silent Killer packs 700HP
They call it “The Thing” and the BMW Silent Killer packs 700HP

A team of engineers at BMW has clandestinely built a Tesla P85D killer with all-wheel-drive offering 700hp. Since it is far away from the books right now it cannot be considered officially as a prototype.

We just rode the GT Power eDrive of the 5-series, the marketing people of BMW call it that, a great amalgamation of next-gen battery technology of the automaker, couple of electric motors and turbocharged gasoline motor and four cylinder engine mounted in the front. The assemblage has been carried out to prove by a bunch of engineers who thought that there is still a hole left to fill up between the battery electric cars and the presently conventional plug-in hybrids. This one they call as “The Thing”.

This one is for the future and scalable with the zero and low emission vehicles capable of turning down the engine to as low as 250hp and when needed all the way up to 650hp. The point is that for three fourth of the time this vehicle will be running as a pure EV. The BMW development engineer said that the vehicle is designed at the same wave length of the 550i and 650i performance cars but will be running on electric power but within a range of 373 miles or 600 km. however BMW is playing coy to come out clear on anything about the vehicle but on an unofficial estimate The Thing is likely to achieve a low-four seconds range for the 0-60mph sprint.

It combines the 270hp of the electric motor located at rear and a new gen electric motor at the front-wheels generate 200hp, which has a battery capable of producing twice as the BMW current hybrid plug-ins  and a turbo four cylinder making 230hp. It is rated 470 hp on pure electric mode and from a starting star it can spin all four wheels. Anybody said about an EV being boring?

What do you think about this vehicle?
