There are not many production vehicles on the planet that can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.8 seconds. The legendary 300 mph Bugatti Chiron can only do it in 2.4 seconds. The Japanese Aspark Owl electric hypercar claims it can go 0-60 In 1.69 Seconds. The fastest cars on the planet, NHRA Top Fuel dragsters can do it in around 0.7 seconds.
So a company, in this case, Daymak, claiming its three-wheel Spiritus Ultimate electric vehicle can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.8 seconds is quite a boast.
Boasting, however, does not appear to be a problem for the company, based on the following description of the Spiritus Ultimate.
It rides like a go kart and loaded with features. This is not for everyone. This is for people who want more. This is for people who want to make a difference on the environment. Every ride to work or for pleasure will be an exciting one.
With the Spiritus you aren’t just buying a car – you are making a statement, while you actively create a greener world.
Considering the fact that if you were to own a Daymak Spiritus Ultimate you will have paid $149,000 for it then, yes, that would be a serious statement.
They do have a cheaper version of the Spiritus, just $19,995, but it only goes from 0 to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds, but who wants that?
The Spiritus Ultimate comes with a 197 horsepower electric motor and a 80 kWh battery to give you a 300 mile range.
Wait, how does a 197 horsepower electric motor go from 0 to 60 in under two seconds? Glad you asked.
It’s because the Spiritus Ultimate weighs in at a very svelte 350 pounds soaking wet thanks to a bunch of carbon fiber bodywork. So don’t go parking it anywhere near a frat house or a MLB spring training site because it might end up somewhere you don’t want it to be.
That means with 197 hp and a weight of 350 pounds the Spiritus Ultimate’s power to weight ratio would be the equivalent of a Bugatti Chiron having 2,477 horsepower.
Daymak claims the Spiritus models will be available in second quarter of 2023, but you can go ahead and pre-order one now because, as the company says on its website, “Placing your order helps produce the car faster.”
And no, Elizabeth Carmichael had nothing to do with this.
