The World’s Lightest Hybrid Hypercar – Tushek TS 900

Tiny Slovenian supercar maker Tushek emerged out of nowhere in 2012 with its 450-horsepower (335-kilowatt) coupe, the Renovatio T500. Seven years later, and Tushek is back with a product more than twice as powerful: the TS 900 H Apex. It’s making its debut at the Salon Prive in the U.K. next month.

The Tushek TS 900 pumps out more than 900 horses, as its name implies.

To 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour), it takes the TS 900 Hybrid a blistering 2.5 seconds. And flat out, Tushek says its hybrid hypercar can hit 236 mph. That’s nearly Bugatti territory. To cope with all that newfound speed, the TS 900 utilizes Pirelli Trofeo Series R tires (235/35 front, 305/30 rear) and massive Brembo brakes. It also has a removable hardtop roof – which allows you to experience all that speed sans roof – and supercar-esque scissor doors.

“The Tushek team is delighted to be back at Salon Privé,” Tushek founder and Slovenian race car driver, Aljosa Tushek, notes. “Over the past years, we have...
