GAC lifts the lid on first ‘supersports’ car


GAC has formally unveiled its lightning-quick electric sports car, the Aion Hyper SSR. Car Design News has the details 

Following a sneak-peek earlier this month, GAC has taken the wraps off its first high performance coupe, the Hyper SSR. Previously teased under the codename ‘AS9’, the model has been officially revealed and will be sold under GAC’s all-electric sub brand Aion.

A sports car – or supersports car in this case – has always been a dream of the design team at GAC. It is not only a first for the Chinese automaker, but for the Chinese market. Aion lays claim to the Hyper SSR as China’s first road-legal electric supercar. And it certainly fits that bracket: design aside, that powertrain can slingshot the car from 0-62mph in less than two seconds.
