A Swiss-Hungarian- U.K. project to create the ultimate sports car of tomorrow has reached back into Hungary’s history to draw on perhaps the most famous name connected with horsepower.
Before creating its new luxury EV brand, the owners of Swiss-U.K. automaker Bak Motors AG did some interviews with potential customers, asking them what their dream car would be. The answer many came up with was a combination of the instant torque and acceleration of an e-motor with the evocative high-revolution scream of a V10 internal combustion engine, company founder Tibor Bak tells the Budapest Business Journal in an exclusive interview.
