Singapore-based Wearnes Automotive has secured an exclusive distributorship for hypercar models Koenigsegg, Pininfarina and Rimac – making the vehicles easily accessible for the Asian market.
This premium car distributor and retailer can now sell the three brands in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Mongolia.
The hypercar trio will be joining Wearnes’ sexy stable of brands, which includes Aston Martin, Bentley, Alpine and Lotus in its Prestige Division.
The hypercar line-up
The Swedish-manufactured, all-new Koenigsegg Jesko was recently unveiled at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show.
This track-focused, road-legal car features a redesigned 5.0 litre, twin-turbo, V8 engine producing 1,280 horsepower on standard gasoline and 1,600 horsepower on E85 biofuel.
Unapologetic about performance and built for speed, Jesko also delivers creature comforts like an easily removed, lightweight carbon roof, transforming it from track weapon to wind-in-your-hair roadster in minutes.
The Rimac C_Two, expected to launch in 2020, will be the world’s most powerful electric hypercar.
Brought to life by a four-motor powertrain system with 1,914 horsepower and 2300Nm of torque, this Croatian-founded gem accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 1.85 seconds and reaches crazy speeds of 300 km/h in 11.8 seconds.
