The Lucid Air Dream Edition is a supercar with a total output of 1,127 horsepower and a range of over 830 km
by Francesco Michienzi
The Dream Edition, the top-of-the-range version of the Lucid Air, has 1,127 horsepower and all-wheel drive thanks to its twin engines. This model can cover 400 metres from standstill in 9.9 seconds and goes from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in 2.5 seconds, with a top speed of 269 km/h.
The 113 kWh batteries guarantee a range of 750 to 800 kilometres depending on the type of alloy wheels it mounts. In the range we can also find the 800-horsepower Air Grand Touring, which can reach 269 km/h and go from 0 to 100 km/h in three seconds, promising a range of 827 km. The 620-horsepower Touring, on the other hand, declares a 3.2-second sprint, 248 km/h top speed and a range of around 650 km with one charge.
What makes everything even more futuristic is the position of the windscreen, which stretches above the front seats, offering a panoramic view from the road to the sky. The same is true of the rear part of the cockpit, thanks to the elongated rear window.
THE LINES ARE RELATIVELY SIMPLE, WITH AMPLE GLAZING,
TO CONVEY THE FEELING OF A CAR WITH A FUTURISTIC,
YET NEVER EXAGGERATED DESIGN.
The exterior has a coupé shape with an elongated rear window and four doors like a sedan. The front end is characterised by two very slim, horizontally developed headlights that integrate the equally slim grille, which is half-covered by a full-width edge.
The rear follows the lines of the front, with a full-width taillight and an imitation central air intake at the bottom, with a chrome surround. The interior features a 34-inch touchscreen. Current upholstery options include options in organic alpaca/wool fabrics and sustainably harvested wood.
From 0 to 100 km/h 2.4 s
