It seems that there’s no stopping automakers all around the world from making their own electric supercar and Chinese manufacturer Beijing Automotive Industry Corporation (BAIC) is the latest company to set the automotive world abuzz.

Leaked photos of BAIC’s supercar have come out prior to its reported launch at Auto China 2016 or otherwise known as the Beijing Motor Show starting April 25, 2016.

The photos show a sleek two-seater sportscar figure with scissor doors, sans any badging of any form.

Aside from the images, there aren’t any details regarding vehicle specifications and performance.

Reports do indicate that BAIC’s supercar can accelerate from 0-100 kilometers per hour in 3 seconds all the way to a top speed of 260 km/h and a range of 300 kilometers.

Speculation also suggests that it comes with three driving modes that come with varying ground clearances – Economy has the highest with 120mm, Comfort sets a little lower at 100mm and Race brings it down to 80mm.

Based on limited information and capacity, the suggested size of BAIC’s supercar is 4,570mm long, 2,040mm wide and 1,214mm tall, and comes with a wheelbase of 2,800mm.
