Looking more like a car you'd expect to have raced next to a Ferrari GTO, the Renovo Coupe claims to be the fastest and most classic-looking electric supercar ever. They got the classic down pat for sure.

The Coupe offers a new and unique viewpoint on the supercar segment. “Our motivation to design and build our cars is not artificially tied to any particular propulsion technology,” notes Jason Stinson, Renovo Motors CTO. “Simply put, we can do things with electric vehicles that can’t be replicated by any other platform. Exploring these areas, reducing them to practice, and building them into our products is at the core of what we do best.”

The Coupe’s incredible performance is made possible by the patent-pending battery technology developed by the Renovo team. Multiple separate battery enclosures enable a performance-oriented weight distribution and minimize chassis volume requirements. The Renovo Motors drivetrain is less than 40% of the total weight of the car, and yet delivers the highest peak power in its class.
