There’s a new dog in the electric supercar fight. The latest entry is from a new company called Elextra, which plans to launch a car by the same name next year. A Swiss supercar that's built by hand in Germany with Italian looks sounds pretty promising, and the CEO of the firm that designed it spoke with Autocar about the details.

To start, it won’t be easy to get your hands on one - they’re only planning on making 100 of them. And though it’s still in the concept phase, Classic Design CEO Robert Palm shared a few projected stats on what the car will be able to do.

This Is Ferrari’s New F12-Based Custom Supercar, the SP275 RW Competizione

  This Is Ferrari’s New F12-Based Custom Supercar, the SP275 RW Competizione A car for someone who finds the Ferrari F12tdf simply too common.Unlike Ferrari’s regular supercars, which tend to be designed to please the eyes of the masses, the carmaker’s one-off Special Projects can often be, shall we say...not traditionally attractive. Beauty is, after all, in the eye of the beholder, and when said beholder is holding a check for several million dollars...well, Ferrari is more than happy to build a custom car that conforms to whatever that wealthy dude or dudette’s particular version of beauty. The latest example: This golden nugget of a Special Projects Ferrari, an F12-based car reportedly known as the SP275 RW Competizione.

Swiss start-up Elextra has revealed more pictures and details of its four-door electric supercar . This is a niche machine and Elextra only plans on building 100 of this eccentric car that has a lot in common with the Lamborghini Estoque concept that never A four-door sportscar isn’t exactly a new concept.

Two electric motors will power all four wheels making a combined peak of 680 horsepower. The car will rocket from 0-62 mph in under 2.3 seconds with a top speed of just 155 mph, and range at highway speeds will be about 373 miles.

Finally, there’s the price. This car is expected to sell for around a half-million dollars when it goes on sale in 2019. Elextra is hoping to have a working prototype about a year from now to prove their lofty claims.

The concept that’s been revealed has an exotic look, but also four doors. It’s sort of a liftback sedan, kind of like the Tesla Model S, but it still has the look of a supercar. The body, structure, and wheels are all carbon fiber to save weight.

The Elextra will go head to head with the Porsche Mission E, the Nio EP9, and of course, the high-performance variants of the Tesla Model S.

<p>McLarens and Porsches and Ferraris, oh my!</p>Supercar Driver is Britain's largest club for supercar owners, and their website makes it clear they strongly believe in living up to the "Driver" half of their name. The result is a slate of annual events focused on getting these machines out of their garage bays and into the world, promising participants "a Matchbox toy collection in the metal." And honestly, it's hard to think of a better way to describe the sight of their show-of-force "secret meet" at the Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in Leicestershire.
