Things to know about the Hypercar
Less than 1% of the energy consumed by an average car is used to propel the driver. 80–90% of the energy is lost through friction and engine heat (on the road and brakes). The Hypercar majority of the remaining energy is used to move the car’s dead weight.
Cars weigh a lot. They are made of steel, and to move them, enormous engines are needed. The paradox is that a larger engine simply adds weight, requiring more power to move it. The weight of a heavy car is increased by the need for power brakes, power steering, and additional fuel.
