Genovation GXE C7 Corvette Stingray
Genovation Cars unveiled an electric Corvette with more power under its hood than a Dodge Challenger Hellcat. They call their car the Genovation GXE, and it is an EV (electric vehicle) variant of the seventh-generation Corvette. The company decided that they would replace the factory LT1 engine found in all base-model C7 Corvettes with a pair of electric motors that, when working in conjunction with each other, provide over 800 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque.

Powered by the regular (and excellent) LT1 V-8, it features magnetic ride control, an electronic limited-slip differential, and Grand Sport wheels.
