GAC Electric Supercar Packs 1255 HP

The 1,255 HP GAC Aion Hyper SSR is China’s First Electric Supercar

With a 0-60 time under 2.0 seconds and more than 8800 lb-ft of Earth-twisting torque on tap, the GAC Aion Hyper SSR sets the bar.

The GAC Aion Hyper SSR is being called China’s first hypercar, and has its sights set squarely on cars like the Bugatti Rimac, Pininfarina Battista, and 1800 HP Zenvo 1. The Aion is a rolling technological showpiece meant to paint GAC as an engineering powerhouse, on par with any of the Western design houses and manufacturers.

From our point of view, we’re convinced. The car is genuinely impressive, and the detail shots GAC provided of the carbon fiber look (at first glance, anyway) to be at least as good as anything we’ve seen at– let’s say Pebble Beach.

It’s a strange thing, too– with Jalopnik’s Owen Bellwood rightly point out that the GAC is, “a weirdly understated affair.”

How could a 1200 HP hypercar be understated? For one, there are no wild wings or gimmicky ducts or hyper-aggressive creases. The look is purposeful, drawn with the same sort of reserved pens that used to draw Ferraris and Alfa Romeos before their target market switched to the Middle East and Russia. And, aure, the show car is painted a vibrant blue, but there’s no steering yoke, no army of screens or crazy, gimmicky lighting. Instead, there’s a set of sport seats, a squared off, racing-style steering wheel, and an iPad-style center console.

As far as we’re concerned, it’s that relative normalcy that makes the company’s stunning performance claims seem so credible. Here’s hoping we get to take out out to a track one day soon.

Pricing starts at about $240,000 for the top-shelf version of the GAC Aion Hyper SSR, with deliveries set to begin next October.
