The Bulgarian company Alieno has started accepting orders for the non-existent Unum hypercar. Depending on the modification, the cost of the exclusive machine, which will be assembled manually, ranges from 1.8 to 4.5 million euros. Engineers are developing two versions of the hypercar at once: an electric drive and a “reactive” power plant running on compressed air. According to representatives of the brand, the maximum speed of the Unum will be more than 580 kilometers per hour.
Four variants of power plants will be prepared for the electrified Alieno Unum. Depending on the modification, three to six electric motors will be placed on each wheel of the hypercar. Their total output will be 2610, 3481, 4351, or 5221 horsepower. The torque is from 4440 to 8880 Nm. Especially for the car, the Bulgarians have developed a battery consisting of graphene lithium polymer cells and supercapacitors. Despite the small capacity of 180 kilowatt-hours, the battery can be fully recharged in just four minutes using ultra-fast charging stations.
The “jet” Unum will receive 24 drives running on compressed air, which will be stored in a special cylinder made of composite materials withstanding pressure up to 700 bar. In addition to creating traction, jet drives are used to steer a hypercar, increase downforce, and also as emergency braking. In addition, under extreme loads, air will serve as an element of the car’s cooling system. Another fantastic option for such engines will be “draining the road” in front of the hypercar while driving in the rain.
Bulgarian engineers plan to assemble Unum exclusively by hand. It will take from 18 to 30 months to create one hypercar. At the same time, the company has already started accepting orders for future cars. The cost of “jet” models will range from 1.8 to 4.5 million euros.
