The latest hypercar looking to take on the big boys of Ferrari, McLaren and Bugatti has been unveiled.

Coming somewhat surprisingly from Slovenia, the Tushek TS 900H Apex has been revealed in a series of photos before it makes its first public appearance at the elite Salon Prive at Blenheim Palace in September.

TheTS 900 H Apex is the brainchild of Slovenian racing driver Aljosa Tushek who previously created the TS 500 Renovatio and TS 600 and has spent the last four years applying his experience on the track to create this latest model.

Powered by a 4.2-litre, supercharged V8 which drives the rear wheels and two electric motors at the front, Tushek claim the TS 900 H produces 937bhp and more than 1,033lb/ft of torque.

That’s less than the recently announced Ferrari SF90 Stradale and all-electric Lotus Evija but Tushek say that doesn’t matter as the TS 900 H Apex is the lightest hybrid hypercar around – weighing in at just 1,410kg, compared to the Ferrari’s 1,570kg and the positively tubby 1,680kg Lotus.

This is achieved by using a chrome-moly spaceframe and pre-impregnated carbon-fibre body, featuring a removal structural hard top and scissor doors.

Top speed is apparently 236mph and the 0-60mph run takes just 2.5 seconds with hefty Brembo brakes to slow it down and Pirelli Trofeo Series R tyres.

Aljosa Tushek commented: “Over the past years we have intensively developed and constructed advanced technological solutions for our new model, the TS 900 H Apex, in particular in the area of electric drive train.

“Those developments are now incorporated in our latest model and have been successfully tested in race-track conditions over the past months.”

There’s no suggestion on price yet but this is a small-volume high-performance hybrid that’s looking to challenge some serious players so don’t expect it to be cheap.
