Alieno all-electric hypercars are just brutal

Edward Green ▼ | July 19, 2018
Alieno all-electric hypercars have brutal technical superiority and are entirely own in-house development based on own innovative patented technologies.
Supercar   5,221-hp and 488 kilometers per hour
AlienoThe name of the brand is derived from the Italian word "alieno", which means "alien". Based on power, the company's first-ever model will have four versions. The base model has 2,610 horsepower (1,946 kilowatts), followed by 3,482-hp (2,596-kW), 4,351-hp (3,244-kW), and the flagship 5,221-hp (3,893-kW) versions. Acceleration times are not available yet, but Alieno claims the range topper will be able to hit a maximum speed of 303 miles per hour (488 kilometers per hour).

AlienoEach version will be offered in three basic modifications - STR (Street), TRC (Track), and RCE (Race). The specifications and basic dynamic characteristics are the same, and the cars only differ by the standards and homologations they meet. Alieno says it’s even able to prepare an example to meet the regulations of the LMP1 category of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, once the rules allow the participation of battery-powered all-electric cars.

AlienoThe powertrain of the hypercar is what Alieno describes as a “direct drive electric powertrain,” which - depending on the version – features up to six electric motors per wheel. What this means is the RP5 top model with 5,221-hp has a system with 24 electric motors, each one controlled individually. These are AC three-phase axial flux electric motors with permanent magnets. The Arcanum rides on “robotic suspension” with double wishbone and pushrod, rocker arm, and adjustable anti-roll bar, combined with electronically-adjustable dampers and active ride-height, fully independent per each wheel.

AlienoAlieno also claims the torque of the powertrain as a system and the wheels is identical, and is 6,490 pound-feet (8,800 Newton-meters), 5,458 lb-ft (7,400 Nm), 4,366 lb-ft (5,920 Nm), and 3,275 lb-ft (4,440 Nm) respectively. The powertrain uses a battery with graphene LiPo cells and supercapacitors with and has a capacity of between 60-kWh and 180-kWh, with the largest package providing up to 634 miles (1,020 kilometers) on a single charge. Prices go from at €750,000 to €1.5 million. Delivery time will vary from 18 to 30 months.
