Last December, Aria dropped its American-made hypercar bombshell in the FXE. The car is meant to characterize a hypercar for the United States of America with features pulled from the F22 Raptor fighter jet. And, there’s a 6.2-liter LT4 supercharged V8 engine under the hood.
But, a Corvette-sourced V8 doesn’t make a hypercar; the added electrification does. And Aria detailed the inspiration behind the FXE in a new video, where the company talks about what led to the defining moment that the team decided it was time to build its own hypercar.
Augmenting the V8 engine dual electric motors to create a combined output of 1,150-horsepower and 1,316 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and 60 mph happens in 3.1 seconds.
Although the video offers plenty of hype, it’s still unclear when the FXE will enter production and how much it will set customers back. Right now, Aria’s website only offers a link to “register interest.” But, no matter what it costs, we don’t imagine this American-made hypercar will be cheap. Grab a closer look at the car in the video above.
