Drako GTE Electric Car

About the Drako GTE Electric Car

PERFORMANCE

Exhilarating on Road and Track

Drako GTE elevates the modern driver experience to an entirely new level. With a fully electric quad motor architecture, GTE generates a colossal 1,200 hp and 8,800 Nm of combined wheel torque for unrelenting acceleration up to a top speed of 206 mph. Each of GTE’s wheels are connected to an individual motor enabling unrivalled turning capability on any kind of road surface. The result is a driver focused supercar that delivers exhilarating performance with maximum control and safety—on road and track.

TECHNOLOGY

Powerful Precision

Each of GTE's quad motors is paired to an individual high capacity inverter specifically engineered for the endurance of extreme performance driving. With four independent inverters, GTE precisely distributes a massive +225 kW to -225 kW range of potential power through each motor with millisecond speed and accuracy. This enables immediate response to every driver input with near zero latency.

TECHNOLOGY

Quad Motor Architecture

GTE’s fully electric quad motor architecture provides an entirely new level of performance and control. Four permanent magnet hybrid synchronous motors generate 1,200 hp and 8,800 Nm of combined wheel torque. Each motor is connected to an individual wheel through a direct-drive gearbox enabling extremely precise torque delivery for incredible performance, turning capability and safety in all conditions.

TECHNOLOGY

Massively Parallel Cooled Battery

GTE’s battery was designed from the ground-up for megawatt power output as well as cooling capabilities to withstand track level performance on the world’s most challenging circuits. With 90 kWh of energy capacity and the ability to output 1,800 continuous and 2,200 peak amps, GTE’s battery is designed to supply GTE’s four motors with 900 kW of uninterrupted power. An internal massively-parallel cooling architecture integrates numerous cooling channels surrounding each individual battery cell to quickly dissipate heat lap after lap

TECHNOLOGY

Equipped for Road and Track Performance

GTE is outfitted with top level components to enhance performance on both road and track. Öhlins four way adjustable suspension provides superior composure and ride quality for everyday driving, as well as full adjustability for the track. Front and rear carbon ceramic Brembo brakes deliver phenomenal stopping power without fade during prolonged performance driving.

TORQUE VECTORING

Dialed-In Driver Control

Drako’s driver oriented Quattro Manettino consists of four console mounted switches to dial-in every aspect of the driving experience. Full control of torque vectoring and slip control, front to rear power distribution, and fine grained regenerative braking control, allows drivers to adjust powertrain characteristics to match their driving style. The Quattro Manettino also provides the ability to select one of six road surface conditions - RACE, TRACK, DRY, RAIN, SNOW, ICE —optimizing GTE’s performance in every driving environment.


TORQUE VECTORING

Replacing differentials with Software

GTE has a maximum torque differential of 4,400 Nm between wheels. This means that through corners, GTE’s quad motor powertrain can vector up to 2,200 Nm of positive torque to the wheels on the outside of the turn, while simultaneously applying up to 2,200 Nm of negative torque to the wheels on the inside of the turn. The result of GTE’s immense torque differential potential is the ability to turn through every corner with unprecedented speed, traction and precision.

DESIGN

Powerful Elegance

Drako GTE’s design is a visual expression of the sheer emotion that comes with driving it. Powerful, agile and firmly planted on the ground. A design that combines a muscular four seater body with the elegance and sensuality of the true GT car, expressed in the fluidity of its lines and the sophistication of the surfaces.

DESIGN

Aggressive Beauty

GTE’s front fascia is dominated by three air intakes that are surrounded by full and continuous surfaces allowing the eye to caress the car without interruptions. The different elements are connected through a play of lines that give origin to signature details and slim lights that together create a confident expression and an aggressive focus on the road ahead.

DESIGN

Performance Aerodynamics

Being a genuine performance car, aerodynamics played a central role in the design of the GTE. This is visible in the fluid shapes and the archetypal ‘Coda Tronca’ design of the rear. But it’s the low splitter of the front and the prominent diffuser in the back that reveal the true sports car DNA of the GTE.
