Crazy 1,500 Horsepower Car Called Dendrobium Has A Terrible Teaser Video

The horsepower game, achieving the highest numbers imaginable out of something with four wheels, used to be cool. When the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 crossed the 1000 horsepower benchmark for a production car, it was a pretty significant event in automotive history. Packing sixteen cylinders and four turbos into an oversized two-seater was not easy. With the advent of electric cars and batteries, the horsepower game became a mathematical equation: Bigger motors and more batteries equal quicker times.

Case in point, Faraday Future just revealed their FF 91 at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. The 1,050 horsepower pure electric vehicle is equipped with a 130 kilowatt-hour battery, capable of producing a 0-60 time of 2.39 seconds. Tesla Motors will surely respond to this by increasing the number between the letters P and D. But these two won’t be the only ones in the electric vehicle hypercar game.

Enter Vanda Electrics, a Singaporean manufacturer of tiny electric scooters. They’re getting in the game, too! As reported by CarBuzz, they have teamed up with Williams Advanced Engineering as a technical partner for their electric hypercar called, Dendrobium.

Named after a Singaporean Orchid, the Dendrobium is supposed to have a total of 1,500 horsepower producing a 0-62 mph time of 2.6 seconds. You’re correct in thinking that doesn’t sound as impressive as the FF91’s performance, but things may have changed since these figures were announced last year.

Now Vanda Electrics just released a teaser video of the Dendrobium rendered in CGI, driving through a fictitious western landscape. It’ll be formally unveiled at the 87th Geneva International Motor Show in March, but we can already see some details in this crappy lo-res YouTube video. The Dendrobium looks like it will have electric motors in each wheel, have the same proportions as a Le Mans Prototype car, and opens its cockpit like a flower. We’re not really sure what to expect from this company just yet. For now, we’ll believe it when we see it.
