What makes a car worthy to be classified a GT? See the world of GT cars through the eyes of the impeccable Drako GTE with 1,200-HP! Check its pic and video below!

Remember when Dean Drako and Shiv Sikand – the owners of Drako Motors – and renowned manufacturers of Silicon Valley, announced the grand arrival of a new, brilliant vehicle – the 2020 electric Drako GTE – at the well attended launching at the Quail Motorsports. Drako announced that the vehicle will be a limited edition of just 25 productions that will cost about $1.25 million / 450 million each. Now, let's see what al the fuss was really about.

1. 2020 electric Drako GTE specs & performance

The Drako electric GTE is powered by a pair of 90 kWh batteries, and possesses four electric motors that produces about 1,200 hp and 6,490 lb-ft of twisting force, which enables the vehicle to accelerate up to 206 mph over 32 km per hour; making it the most powerful GT vehicle ever. This is an all wheel drive GT linked to a motor by different plain gearboxes, enabling each wheel to remain stabilized for specific torque service. Excited, are we? Check out more stats below:

Drako’s torque formula was developed at Nurburgring, which can realign torque on each of these wheels over a thousand times each second, making the GTE matchless, in terms of capacity.

The Drako GTE’s new electric vehicle is designed specifically, bearing Fisher Karma in mind, as it’s a mixture of a hefty body with an exotic design. It is a four-seater petite, but elegant vehicle with a back sound dispenser, and a 15 kW charger that can power a DC charger of about 150 kW capacities.

The suspension is made by Ohlins; it is adjustable with a four-way track capacity. It has two brakes at the front and back, that are made of pure ceramics. The pair of tires is 20 inches each, and is specially made by Michelin.

The DriveOS, which is a software platform for electric sports cars that was officially launched in 2015, and was introduced in Drako automobiles, has since launched a good number of softwares which was perfected in the GTE, making it the most powerful adventure giver of our time.

Drako enables the driver to maneuver the torque transmission along with the power distribution at the front and back, and the slip control system with vegetative brakes. Also, the secondary dial sets enables the driver to calibrate a room for the driving conditions with speed, lane, ice, rain, snow and dry specifications.

The GTE is uniquely different in design and exceptional in both features and performance. The back view is more attractive than the front, because the front is shaped by the coolant for the battery.
