Silk-FAW Unveils Production Hongqi S9 Hypercar With 1,400 HP And 248 MPH

 To design its hypercar for the future, Silk-FAW went where anyone with an eye for design and a taste for the excessive goes: Italy. The result is a car that features all of the performance figures you could hope for.

Off the line, the Hongqi S9 will get you from 0-62 mph in just 1.9 seconds. From there, it will go all the way up to 400 km/h (249 mph). That’s thanks to a 1,400 hp hybrid driveline that pairs a V8T hybrid power system that pairs an engine to three electric motor

The design, meanwhile, was led by the legendary Walter De Silva. The VP of Styling and Design at Silk-FAW has, in the past, designed such stunners as the Audi R8, the Lamborghini Egoista, and even more quotidian things like the modern Volkswagen Scirocc

“We designed the shapes and technical surfaces skillfully until we reached the point of maximum balance between aerodynamics, proportions and beauty,” said De Silva. “No detail was left to chance in order to complete the body shape of the Hongqi S9 with an aesthetic language of essential, dynamic lines. The end result reveals a timeless, athletic styling that defines the Essence of Beauty.”
