Ronn Motors Scorpion Combines Gasoline And Hydrogen

Ronn Motors ScorpionRonn Motors has created one of the best supercars. They have combined the speed of a super car with environment friendly technology. The result is the Scorpion.

The new Scorpion has tons of power – but without producing an insane amount of emissions like most supercars do. They are able to do this using a combination of gasoline and hydrogen.

According to Bornrich, the engine used in the Scorpion is a 3.5-liter, six-cylinder VTEC engine from Acura. The engine usually pushes out 280hp, but thanks to twin turbos this is bumped up to 450hp. The hydrogen fuelled engine is connected to an on-demand hydrogen system, this then breaks down the molecules and holds them in a non-pressurized tank. This system does without the need for a hydrogen refueling station.

30 to 40 percent of that hydrogen then gets mixed with standard gasoline; this allows the Scorpion to achieve 40mpg. The Ronn Motors Scorpion weighs 2,100 pound and will go from 0-60 in just 3.5 seconds. The Scorpion will cost $150,000.
