This is the spectacular Windbooster Titan electric supercar from China, it debuted over the weekend on the AAITF auto parts & tuning show in the great city of Shenzhen in Guangdong Province. The Titan simply looks stunning, screaming pure speed with every line and corner.
Design seems somewhat inspired by the McLaren P1 and various Lotus cars, but not too much.
The Windbooster Titan is a fully functional concept car manufactured by a Chinese company called Windbooster Car Corporation (web), which is fully owned by Cammus (web), a large maker of performance and after-market parts.
Cammus was founded in 2008 and decided to go into cars in 2014, with the Titan as the first result. The company plans to start with making a small series for track-use only, and then move on to making a road version. The concept shows the road version.
A racy interior with lots of leather, perforated pedals, and a flat bottomed steering wheel.
The Windbooster Titan is powered by two electric motors, one on each rear wheel, with a combined output of 500hp and a massive 1000nm (other sources say 980nm).
Battery power comes from two parallel-switched Panasonic 500V 72kWh lithium units. The battery pack is located just before the rear wheels, giving the Titan a ‘mid engine’ layout. The chassis is based around a tubular frame made partly out of steel and partly out of titanium.
Top speed is 260 kilometer per hour, o-100 is gone in 3.9 seconds, and 200-250 is done in 5.9 seconds. Range is 400 kilometer. Charging on 220V takes seven hours and 1.5 hours on a fast charger. All specs are based on claims by the manufacturer.
Size: 4500/1950/1200, wheelbase is 2650, weight distribution is 40:60 (no number for weight). The engine weigh 75 kilo each and measure only 265/350/400. Max speed of the motor is 12.000 RPM.
The instrument panel is fully digital. Power reserve meter on the left, and a speedo on the right.
Buttons and switches are always hard to get right for a first-car concept from a non-car making company, but Cammus did reasonably well here. It looks techy and racy, and the big red start button is impressive.
Sporty leather seats with Sparco belts and the Cammus logo on the headrest.
The drive selector on the center console.
The rear with the stabilizer fins, a very wide wing on two tiny pillars, an all black bumper, and an eight-fin diffuser.
The chassis without the battery back. Pushrod suspension.
With the battery pack and wiring installed.
With two decently dressed girls.
The Windbooster Titan is the latest in a string of new Chinese electric supercars of proposals therefore, including the Qiantu K50, the Thunder Power, and the controversial Youxia One. Will even one of them really hit the road..? We sure hope they will, all of them!
And we end this story with this sweet little photoshop from Windbooster’s own website. It shows the Titan standing on a not-too fancy street in the great city of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. I know, I hail from there. It is nice Windbooster choose Amsterdam for their promotional material, but what about a nice canal or a palace next time..?
More on the Titan soon!
Well, like so many Chinese electric supercars, we haven’t had much news on them as of late. It’s still nice to see one pop up every once in a while. But I’ll suspend my judgment until I see one on the road/or reviewed.
Looks like a lightweight track-focused sports car.
This car looks way too flimsy to work on the streets.
Ouch, the power cabling looks terrible. It will be an EMC nightmare if it gets to the high power mode!
