Techrules GT96 - aviation fuel micro-turbines!

Production-ready Techrules GT96 should become available following its debut in Geneva next month. The GT96 will be powered by an innovative Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle (TREV) propulsion system that is comprised of a range-extending aviation kerosene-fueled micro-turbine, that spins up to 96,000 rpm (36 kilowatts) 30 kW to power the generator, feed the 20 kWh lithium-manganese-oxide battery. The remaining 6 kW for auxiliary equipment. The Gt96 has six electric motors. two motors at the front and four in the rear - 1,030 horsepower (768 kilowatts) and 6,372 pound-feet of torque! It'll have laser headlights, LED star burst lights and integrated cameras. The supercar is the first project for the Giugiaro's new Italian company GFG Style, which stands for Giorgetto Fabrizio Giugiaro. Giorgetto styled the Maserati Ghibli, De Tomaso Mangusta and Lotus Esprit during his long career.

Thanks. The monoposto in the thumbnail doesn't match the concept sedan. The most interesting part to me was the name Giorgetto Fabrizio Giugiaro.

It turns out Giorgetto is the father and Fabrizio is the son. And Italdesign is now owned by VW.

That looks interesting, but I still don't consider a turbine so great at all for car applications. Even main battle tanks are switching from turboshaft engines to conventional Diesel ones (which can also run not just on aviation kerosene but also on regular kerosene).
