Pininfarina has unveiled the HK GT at the Geneva motor show, with the vehicle now becoming the fourth concept car to have been created by the famed Italian design studio for Hong Kong-headquartered Hybrid Kinetic Group.
Like all of the latter, the HK GT gets a micro-turbine generator that serves as a range extender for the car’s 38 KWh battery unit; the latter, allied to four motors with a 2-speed transmission, is claimed to deliver a total power output of over 792 bhp, a top speed of 155 mph, and a 0-62 mph time of 2.7 seconds.
Additional powertrain features include torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive as well as a regenerative braking system.
While the GT’s exterior design details include gull-wing doors and a new interpretation of the HK grille, in which the chromed slats open up – “like petals” – to frame the headlights, the interior cabin features a floating dashboard and front seats that appear to be suspended from the central tunnel. There’s also switchable mood lighting – red for “race” mode, and blue for “cruise” mode.
The HK GT is the latest output of a four-year, £54 million partnership between Pininfarina and China’s Hybrid Kinetic Group.
