You've probably heard the news about Tesla's revamped Roadster, capable of doing 0-60 mph in an astounding 1.9 seconds, making it the world's quickest production car. But even before the first Roadster rolls out of the factory, Taipei-based startup XING Mobility is aiming to one-up Tesla with a rally-inspired supercar it calls the "Miss R." The vehicle generates a jaw-dropping 1,341 horsepower, thanks to four independent electric motors delivering four-wheel torque vectoring and these impressive numbers: 0-62 mph in 1.8 seconds, 0-124 mph in 5.1 seconds, and a top speed over 168 mph. While that last figure is considerably slower than the 250 mph top speed of the Tesla Roadster, the Miss R makes up for that deficiency with an innovative modular battery system. It features a LEGO-like configuration made up of 98 stackable modules, each containing 42 lithium-ion cells.

XING Mobility plans to roll out a working prototype of the Miss R in late 2018.
