Created by students from the Spanish Institute of IED Barcelona, the Tesla T1 electric car concept is intended for participation in the future Le Mans electric car races.
The car has an aggressive style, but that's not what makes it special.
The design of each wheel is based on the Gorlov turbine concept, named for the Russian-American scientist Alexander Gorlov. The turbines are driven by air currents, regardless of the blade angle. After passing through them, the air travels further - through channels leading to an even larger, fifth and final turbine at the rear of the car. Here the streams merge and are pushed out with incredible force. In combination with the electric drive, this gives even more acceleration and more power.
The Tesla T1 will use four 250 kilowatts of electric motors in each wheel and will end up with one megawatt of power. The weight of the entire machine is only 900 kilograms. It is expected that the car will be able to reach a speed of 410 km / h. In addition, the front and rear axles can be steered independently of each other, which gives more maneuverability on the track. The authors believe that their racing car should definitely win the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in 2030.
