This stunning supercar of the future doesn’t run on gasoline. It’s not a typical battery-driven electric car either. No hydrogen fuel cells, no solar panels, no biodiesel drivetrain. The QUANT E-Sportlimousine concept runs on salt water. Yes, that abundant resource that puts the “blue” in the “blue planet” we live on can be used to power a supercar.

The QUANT E-Sportlimousine is a supercar concept that uses salt water as fuel to power four electric motors. Salt water electric power isn’t new, it has been tested by organizations like NASA since the mid-1970s. In the case of the E-Sportlimousine, this powertrain and its 4 electric motors produce 912 horsepower, enough to push this vehicle to 234 miles per hour on the top end. It boasts a 400 mile range based on its salt water fuel source, and it does so in ultimate style.

Just look at this beast. The QUANT E-Sportlimousine is as beautiful as it is technically marvellous, a vehicle that exudes luxury while sipping sea water as its fuel. It is the brainchild of Nunzio La Vecchia, the chief technical officer of nanoFLOWCELL AG, the brand that will be producing the QUANT E-Sportlimousine.

The QUANT E-Sportlimousine isn’t a pipe dream, either. It’s a proven concept, a working prototype that has just been approved for driving tests on public roads in Germany and other parts of the European Union. It had already made its debut in Geneva and Monaco earlier this year, but this bit of news shows that this salt water electric car technology has legs - er, wheels.

There will hopefully be a lot more to come from nanoFLOWCELL AG and the QUANT E-Sportlimousine in the months ahead. For now, the technical details are still a bit limited, but it’s encouraging to see such great promise in a new technology like this.
