Silicon Valley start-up Drako is preparing to unveil its latest creation – the Dragon, a 2000hp electric SUV.
Yes, you read that right.
This thing is packing hypercar horsepower.
Yet to be fully unveiled, the teaser shots published by Drako show the Dragon with a sleek, Italian-designed body.
It’s actually been penned by Lowie Vermeersch who designed the Ferrari 458 Italia.
So it’s safe to say he knows how to design a good-looking car.
The bodywork will supposedly be “sculpted almost entirely from carbon fiber.”
These teaser shots also show it with gullwing doors (ss if it wasn’t an obvious Tesla Model X rival already).
Although full specifications are yet to be revealed, the company does note it will feature four electric motors – one for each wheel.
With 2000hp (1491kW) on tap, it will be more powerful than even the 1914hp (1427kW) Rimac Nevera.

It also promises a 0-97km/h (0-60mph) sprint time of just 1.9 seconds.
That’s sickeningly fast, as is its claimed top speed of 322km/h (200mph).
Being an SUV, the Drako Dragon is also intended to feature three-stage adjustable suspension to help with off-roading capabilities.
If this all sounds too good to be true, do take solace in the fact this isn’t Drako’s first attempt at a car.
In 2019 it debuted the GTE – a Tesla Model S rival last seen performing arctic weather testing in 2021.
The GTE is priced at a whopping $1.25 million, but Drako claims the Dragon will be competitively priced with other super SUVs.
If so, expect it to sit somewhere between $150,000 to $250,000 – in-line with the likes of the Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga.
