Toroidon, a brand new manufacturer out of Finland, has announced an all-electric concept with 1000kW, or the equivalent of 1,341hp. The Toroidion 1MW Concept will be unveiled in a world premiere at Top Marques Monaco, the luxury car show set to take place from April 16 to 19.

Described as equally suited to the track and the open road, the Toroidion 1MW Concept was hand-assembled in Finland using artisanal techniques and high-tech materials.

In terms of pure power, according to the manufacturer's claims, the Toroidion 1MW Concept would rank between the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse (1,200hp) and the Koenigsegg One:1 (1,400hp). Among all-electric vehicles, however, it is slated to be by far the most powerful ever made.

Top Marques Monaco will showcase around 60 supercars and customized vehicles, including the Evantra by Mazzanti and the Lamborghini Aventador by Hamann Motorsport. Clients will even have the option of testing these vehicles on a private section of a Formula 1 track before making their purchases.

The star of this 2015 edition is expected to be the AeroMobil 3.0, a car with the ability to transform into a two-seater plane. The latest iteration of this exceptional Slovakian vehicle, which has top speeds of 160km/h on land and 200km/h in the air, will be unveiled to the public at the exclusive Monaco car show.
