The combined output of this unique package is 512 horsepower, which is expected to bring the supercar from knot to 60 in about five seconds. La Vecchia explained at this year’s Geneva Motor Show that the so-called Flow Accumulator Energy Storage (FAES) invented by NLV is a combination of an electro-chemical battery and a redox cell.
