When we think of European hypercars, we usually think of automakers from either Germany, France, or Italy. Slovenia, not so. However, the Central European nation, more popularly known for its ski resorts and lakes, has built a new hypercar, and it certainly looks the part.
Called the TS 900 H Apex, it was built by Slovenian manufacturer Tushek which was founded by the racing driver of the same name, Aljosa Tushek. Despite being a new name in the business, the TS 900 H Apex has all the right hypercar ingredients. Do note, however, that this isn’t Tushek’s first model as that belongs to the Renovatio T500 introduced in 2008.
Going back to the TS 900 H Apex, it uses a supercharged 4.2-liter V8 paired with two electric motors (one on each front wheel). Combined, the Slovenian hypercar produces a total of 950 horsepower and 1,400 Nm torque. To keep weight to a minimum, the TS 900 H Apex uses numerous lightweight materials and construction methods. As such, Tushek claims their hypercar only has a curb weight of 1,410kg. For reference, this is lighter than the all-new Ferrari SF90.
The TS 900 H Apex sends power to the ground via a six-speed sequential gearbox. In order to keep the car planted, it uses a set sticky Pirelli Trofeo Series R. With 950 horsepower combined with an ultralight body, Tushek says that their TS 900 can go from 0 to 97km/h in just 2.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 380 km/h. Meanwhile, Brembo brakes all around help the Apex stop in a dime.
“The Tushek team is delighted to be back at Salon Privé. Over the past years, we have intensively developed and constructed advanced technological solutions for our new model, the TS 900 H Apex, in particular in the area of electric drive train. Those developments are now incorporated in our latest model and have been successfully tested in race-track conditions over the past months,” said Aljosa Tushek, founder of Tushek Ltd.
Pricing has yet to be revealed but considering it is of hypercar caliber, expect it to be pricey. The question now is whether you would choose this new Slovenian model or stick with something more familiar.
