This 1030-hp Mazda hypercar can hit zero to 100 kmph in just 2.5 seconds
Back in 2015, Mazda had launched the RX-Vision at the Tokyo Motor Show. It generated hopes that the Japanese car manufacturer will build a new sports car soon as a successor to the RX-8.
Five years later, designer Maximilian Schneider has presented his vision of the new Mazda hypercar - the RX-10 Vision Longtail.Maximilian Schneider is an exterior designer at Mitsubishi Motors Japan.
Schneider designed this dramatic-looking Mazda hypercar concept, which is envisioned as a hydrogen-powered halo hypercar that could be used on the road.In fact, this Japanese hypercar could be produced in series as well as a racing car for the next Hypercar class at Le Mans.
Schneider shared the pictures of the Mazda RX-10 on social media platform Instagram, revealing the specs and details of the design and exterior of the car.
The RX-10 Vision is powered bya 3-cylinder 2.3-litre turbocharged engine which alone produces 780 horsepower.To increase power and performance, this hypercar would also benefit from two electric motors placed on the front axle.
Each would develop125 horsepower, giving a total of 1,030 horsepower.According to the designer of the hypercar, the RX-10 is capable of hitting zero to 100 kmph in just 2.5 secondsand to reach a maximum speed of 427 kmph.
Asthe RX-10 Vision Longtail has an engine at the rear, it adopts an attractive profileof supercar with central engine.The style is fluid with the rounded shapes.LED headlights and a very recognisable Mazda grille complete the look.
The back part of the concept is more intriguing.As the name suggests, it is a "Longtail", understand "long tail".Thus,it really has a pistachio lookready to do battle with theAston Martin Valkyrieand otherAMG Project One.
