The brand new Kepler MOTION has made its global debut at the 2009 Dubai International Motor Show. Developed by Kepler Motors, founded by World Speed Record Holder Russ Wicks, the vehicle combines an all-wheel drive Dual Powertrain Technology (DPT) producing a combined 800hp. Power comes from a 550hp, modified Ford EcoBoost twin-turbo 3.5 liter V6 driving the rear wheels acting independently of a 250hp electric motor driving the front wheels. This unique AWD system launches the MOTION to 60mph under 2.5 seconds with a top speed over 200mph.
The MOTION is developed from the ground up by a team of hand-picked design engineers, aerodynamicists, product development, and manufacturing specialists and incorporates a number of technologies such as active suspension, active aerodynamics, launch control and a programmable track assistant system.
The hybrid supercar features extensive use of carbon fiber composite materials for its monocoque chassis and body. The structure provides a two-seat cabin designed to accommodate drivers of above average size. StopTech’s new Continuous Carbon Ceramic (C3) AeroRotors are used on all four wheels to ensure smooth, fade-free stopping power.
Only 50 MOTIONs will ever be produced. Each vehicle will be hand assembled and deliveries will start in 2011.
