Beijing-based automotive research and development company, Techrules, has appointed design and engineering partners to assist with the development and production of its advanced turbine-recharging electric supercar. It has appointed Fabrizio and Giorgetto Giugiaro as designers, and experienced engineering and production specialist L.M. Gianetti.
The partnerships will focus on further developing the GT96 supercar – which was first presented as a concept at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March – and beginning low volume manufacture of the production version in the coming years. It will be powered by Techrules’ turbine-recharging electric vehicle (TREV) technology.
Techrules began prototype testing in February 2016 at Silverstone Race Circuit in the UK. The production version of the GT96 will debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, by which time Techrules and its partners will be finalizing the supercar’s development and fine-tuning its manufacturing processes.
