Time now for a closer look at the BYD Tang Ultimate Edition, the super speedy and hyper exclusive variant of the new BYD Tang SUV. The Tang Ultimate Edition is limited to 200 cars and costs 600.000 yuan (96.530 USD), but price goes down to 520.000 yuan (83.711 USD) when all green-car subsidies are included. Still a lot of money, especially since the base Tang starts at 220.000 yuan. So what do you get for all that extra cash? More power!, and then some.

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.
