Behold! This is the completely mad BYD Tang Ultimate Edition, an extremely fast hybrid SUV from China. The regular BYD Tang SUV will be launched on the Chinese car market later tonight, powered by a hybrid drivetrain that will propel the vehicle to 100 kilometer per hour in only 4.9 seconds. The Extreme Edition however will be faster still, it will reach the hundred in 4.5 seconds (!!!) due to added lightness, wings, and racy tires. Amazingly, Chinese media say the Extreme Edition will become available as a limited edition on special order, but BYD has not confirmed this yet.
