Kepler Motion preview

Presented by American company Kepler Motors at the Dubai Motor Show, the Motion supercar features a 800hp Dual Powertrain Technology (DPT), which combines a 550 hp, twin-turbo V6 driving the rear wheels and a 250 hp electric motor driving the front.
This AWD system launches the Motion to 60 mph under 2.5 seconds with a top speed over 200 mph.
The Motion was developed from the ground up by a team of design engineers, aerodynamicists, product development, and manufacturing specialists and incorporates a number of technologies such as active suspension, active aerodynamics, launch control and programmable track assistant system.
The car features extensive use of carbon fiber composite materials for its monocoque chassis and body. The light, strong and highly impact-resistant structure provides a two-seat cabin designed to accommodate drivers of above average size.
The Motion uses StopTech’s new Continuous Carbon Ceramic (C3) AeroRotors on all four wheels to ensure smooth, fade-free stopping power.
Comprising silicon carbide ceramic material reinforced with long, continuous carbon fibers, the C3 brake rotor material offers mechanical durability and heat transfer capabilities.
Only 50 units will ever be produced: each vehicle will be hand assembled and deliveries will start in 2011.
Kepler Motors' founder and CEO is Russ Wicks, the only living person to hold world speed records over 200 MPH on land and water.
