Speaking earlier this year, Leach said the car’s drivetrain would produce more than one megawatt of power, which equates to 1341bhp.

NextEV’s hypercar will rival the McLaren P1 and LaFerrari, along with the upcoming Aston Martin AM-RB001 and Mercedes-AMG hypercars.

Reports suggest power could reach 1360bhp, but this is yet to be confirmed. There are also suggestions that the coupe will hit 62mph in less than three seconds and exceed 186mph.

NextEV is remaining tight-lipped on volumes and pricing, but the hyper car is expected to cost close to £1 million.
