Karma reports the SC2 delivers 1,100 horsepower and 10,500 lb.-ft. of torque, resulting in a ridiculous 0 - 60 mph dash of less than 1.9 seconds!

The luxury two-door is intended to be a “bold demonstration” of the company’s future technology and design direction.

The SC2 was revealed alongside the new 2020 Revero GTS, a $150,000 performance version of Karma's plug-in hybrid Revero GT.

Karma Automotive, the Southern California-based startup, revealed on Tuesday a sleek new all-electric concept vehicle with hinge winged doors and mind boggling performance.

The SC2 delivers ridiculous numbers. According to the company it produces 1,100 horsepower, 10,500 lb.-ft. of torque and rockets from 0 to 60 mph in less than 1.9 seconds! It also has an estimated 350 miles thanks to its “I-shaped” 120-kWh battery.

Their tech showcase in the SC2 includes advanced safety and ease of life features such as facial and fingerprint recognition sensors for entry into the vehicle.

“Karma’s SC2 is a signpost to our future as a technology-driven brand,” Karma Automotive CEO Lance Zhou said in a release. “More than that, it previews our future design language, and is a thought-provoking expression of Karma’s future Intellectual Property and product offerings.”

The company’s new 2020 Revero GTS was also revealed alongside the SC2.

The GTS is a performance version of Karma’s Revero GT plug-in hybrid, which debuted earlier this year.

According to Karma the Revero GTS achieves 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and has an EV driving range of 360 miles, with 80 miles of all-electric, zero-emission driving before it's twin-turbo, in-line three-cylinder engine is needed.

Preorders are already being taken for the Revero GTS, which starts at $149,950. Production is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2020.
