Kepler Motors, founded by World Speed
Record Holder Russ Wicks, will unveil its groundbreaking MOTION supercar
at this year's Dubai International Motor Show, December 16-20. Infusing
state-of-the-art automotive engineering and applied science materials
with the latest advanced technologies, the MOTION redefines the
paradigms of the supercar with unprecedented performance, style,
exclusivity, safety and efficiency.
The MOTION sets a new standard with
all-wheel drive Dual Powertrain Technology (DPT) which provides a
combined 800 hp. Power comes from a 550 hp, modified Ford EcoBoost
twin-turbo 3.5 liter V6 driving the rear wheels acting independently of
a 250 hp electric motor driving the front wheels. This unique AWD system
launches the MOTION to 60 mph under 2.5 seconds with a top speed over
"We're delighted to host the worldwide
debut of the Kepler Motors MOTION at the Dubai International Motor
Show," said Wicks. "The region has a passion for ultra high performance,
limited edition supercars, and presents the ideal platform to showcase
the advanced technology and innovative features of the MOTION."
The MOTION is developed from the ground
up by a team of hand-picked design engineers, aerodynamicists, product
development, and manufacturing specialists and incorporates a number of
leading edge technologies such as active suspension, active
aerodynamics, launch control and a programmable track assistant system.
Lightweight, powerful, balanced and
efficient, the MOTION features extensive use of carbon fiber composite
materials for its monocoque chassis and body. The light, strong and
highly impact-resistant structure provides a two-seat cabin designed to
accommodate drivers of above average size in a stylish, sophisticated
and aerodynamically efficient design.
The MOTION uses StopTech's new
Continuous Carbon Ceramic (C3) AeroRotors on all four wheels to ensure
smooth, fade-free stopping power. Comprising silicon carbide ceramic
material reinforced with long, continuous carbon fibers, the unique C3
brake rotor material offers greater mechanical durability and unique
heat transfer capabilities when compared to competitive carbon-ceramic
As only 50 MOTIONs will ever be
produced, ownership will go to a small, exclusive and elite group of
individuals. Each vehicle will be hand assembled and deliveries will
start in 2011.
