Chinese company Farnova Automotive has shown its first model: an electric hypercar called Othello.
The new hypercar from China is the brainchild of businessman Guo Galin, owner of the Farnova Yacht shipyard. Like Farnova Automotive, the shipbuilding firm is based in Shenzhen.

Meanwhile, according to preliminary information, it is on the chassis of the K50 model that the new Farnova Othello hypercar is based, although neither externally nor technically the cars intersect.
For the Farnova Othello hypercar, 1835 hp are declared. and 12,000 Nm of torque. The battery capacity of the Swedish company Northvolt is 75 kilowatt-hours. Without recharging, the Othello electric car supposedly travels 600 km, and spends 1.9 seconds to accelerate to the first “hundred”. Moreover, its maximum speed reaches 420 km / h.
Farnova Automotive calls Othello’s design “Italian.” The hypercar received a retractable wing, an air brake, and a massive diffuser. There is minimalism in the cabin. The start of production of new items worth 1.86 million yuan (approximately $ 288,100) is scheduled for 2023. They also plan to produce pickups and electric buses under the Franova brand.
