Kepler Motors releases videos of its 800-hp hybrid supercar

Kepler Motors is gearing up to get its Motion hybrid supercar to customers. The California-based boutique automaker originally announced the 800-hp car in 2009 and should begin deliveries in the near future. In anticipation of the launch, it has released three new video clips showing the Motion … in motion.

The last time we saw the Motion was when it was first announced at the 2009 Dubai International Motor Show. Kepler has kept pretty quiet since then, but it broke that silence last month with several new video clips. The clips show a purple Motion getting down to business in what appears to be the Californian desert.

The Motion is a hybrid supercar that combines a twin-turbo 3.5-liter Ford EcoBoost V6 driving the rear wheels with a pair of electric motors driving the front wheels. The V6 has been tuned up to 550 hp – close to 200 extra ponies over what you’d get in the Ford F-150 – and the electric motors throw in 250 hp.

Combine the virile AWD powertrain with the Motion’s carbon fiber monocoque and body, and Kepler says that the car fires to 60 mph (96.5 km/h) in a Veyron-like 2.5 seconds. The speedometer doesn’t stop until it runs north of 200 mph (322 km/h), making the car just as fast as and several ticks quicker than the comparably powered Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid.

There’s no word on what the Motion will cost, but combine its cutting edge design, speedy performance and limited 50-model production run, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see something well up into the six-figure range, if not beyond. If that sounds too rich for your blood, you’ll have to be content watching it terrorize the streets in the trio of videos below.
