Brusa weaves sexy, sporty Spyder

But floor it, and you won't go far

Top three mobile application threats

Leccy Tech Buddy's Metro was the only production e-car unveiled at the recent Electric Vehicle Symposium in Norway, but it certainly wasn't the prettiest. That accolade’s almost certainly been won by Brusa's Spyder.

Brusa's Spyder: production plans aren't in place

Looking like a cross between a Porsche 356 and Lotus Elise – and that's no bad thing in our book - the Spyder shares several drive train components with Lampo's Protoscar roadster.

For example, power comes from a 16kWh battery pack connected to two 95kW (127bhp) electric motors – one for each real wheel. According to Brusa, its Spyder can hit 60mph in under six seconds and has a top speed of 200kph (124mph).

Brusa’s also worked out that if you drive the Spyder at a jogging pace then it’ll go for roughly 200km (124 miles). But put your foot down and gun the ‘leccy car to its top speed then you’ll only get 35km (22 miles) down the road.

Alas, much like the Protoscar, Brusa’s gorgeous retro ‘leccy roadster’s only a technology demonstrator for the firm’s EV drive train and software development programme. ®
