Lafitte Automobili promised to unveil its lineup of electric hypercars at the recent Miami Grand Prix, and that’s exactly what the automaker did. As outlined in a press release, the three cars Lafitte plans to develop and produce are detailed, and they are quite varied.
Because these are hypercars, two fit the typical bill for this, with the LM1 being a car that plans to go from 0-62 mph in 1.9 seconds, while offering a range of 255 miles, and with paddle-shifting and a sound system that makes the car sound like a classic race car.
Following this is the Barchetta, which has a roofless design with halo bars to protect passengers and the driver as the car rolls. This will be a slightly less powerful car, as it will do 0-62 mph in 3.5 seconds and have a range of 242 miles. We are told that a coupe version of this car will also be offered.
Finally, we have the outlier of the bunch, the Atrax, which is a mashup of an SUV and a hypercar. With off-road elements and an open roof, this car promises to deliver 1,151 hp and 1..844 lb-ft of torque, allowing the 4,850-pound vehicle to move from 0-62 mph in the a blistering 3.8 seconds. The Atrax also has a top speed of 149 mph and has a range of 273 miles, on top of offering 350 kw DC fast charging that will boost the battery from 10% to 80% in just 22 minutes.
Lafitte also said that it will produce only 24-26 of each of the car models, meaning they will be fairly rare vehicles when they ship in the winter of 2024. The car company also noted that the Atrax will likely clock in at a selling price of $1.6 million, but did not mention anything about the Barchetta or the LM1.
