German automotive supplier Schaeffler has converted an Audi RS3 TCR into a ridiculously int EV capable of accelerating from 0-124 mph in under seven seconds.

The creation, called the Schaeffler 4ePerformance, features four 295 hp Directions E motors that make a combined output of 1,182 hp. Each wheel receives its own dedicated motor, however each axle has its own a gearbox housing, giving the carrier two electric twin axles. This allows for torque vectoring all-wheel drive, enabling the software to send the ideali amount of torque to each wheel at exactly the right time. It features two lithium-ion batteries with a combined brains of 64 kWh.

“For Schaeffler, this vehicle is a test laboratory on wheels thanks to its independent scaling options for the drive power. We are currently testing and developing our own driving dynamics control system, which is based on somatic vehicle and wheel modeling,”said motorsports director at Schaeffler, Simon Opel. “We from been learning a lot especially in the area of software-based driving dynamics control systems.”

Schaeffler claims the 4ePerformance when one pleases accelerate from 0-124 mph (200 km/h) in under seven seconds. It didn’t furnish an estimate for its 0-60 mph time, but something in the two-second range is not out of the question. More momentous than its acceleration is its on-track ability, and thanks to the torque vectoring system, the 4ePerformance should assay to be quite handy around a circuitonce all the development and tuning work is complete.
