Techrules AT96 TREV

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, along comes an electric supercar that packs a claimed 6372lb ft of torque. Yes, you read that figure correctly. Regardless of whether that’s a realistic claim or not, there’s certainly a lot of interesting engineering going on in the new Techrules TREV supercar. Bring on the dyno day – if they can find one that can register that much torque, that is.

Renault’s revealed its new Megane Sport Tourer. It’s got a 580-litre boot, folding rear seats and a whole host of other practical touches. It faces stiff competition, though, from the likes of the VW Golf and Ford Focus estate – among others.
