(VIDEO) Michael Motorsport Gitano an electric sports-car from the Philippines (e-GT111)04 November 2011
Revealed at the SEMA Show here is a GT developed by Michel Motorsport a Filipino manufacturer financed by an English investor.
Jan Kierulf, President of Michel Motorsport strongly believes in the potential of the Philippines in the automotive industry and the strategic role that the country could play in Asia.
Michel Motorsport focused on the design and uses specialized sub-contractors EV Drive for the electric powertrain and English chassis and suspensions.
The Gitano is neo retro with a large grille and stern that recalls the Alfa Romeo TZ (mostly the TZ3) and we have to admit that this interpretation is very attractive ...
This two-seat electric GT receives the EV-Drive technology -a company specializing in conversion of vehicles and that offers a wide range of engines- developping 200hp and 1150Nm of torque, and mated to a two-speed transmission.
The e-GT111 announces 160km of range in full electric and an additional range of 400km thanks to the 25kW range extender, max. speed is 225kph.
That is a very interesting introduction but some important elements are missing, it needs to prove its potential on the road and announce a price! It will be produced in limited quantites for Europe and England
