Ronn Scorpion

Texas-based Ronn Motor Company has released details of the Scorpion project, a sportscar powered by an Acura V6 engine coupled with a Hydrogen-on-demand system which mixes Hydrogen with gasoline to increase fuel economy.


Ronn Motor Company ScorpionAs company’s founder Ronn Maxwell explains, the hydrogen delivery system produces hydrogen on demand, and in real time.

130 octane Hydrogen is inducted through the air intake manifold and blended with gasoline at a ratio of 30-40 percent hydrogen.

The fuel for this system is derived from fracturing water molecules drawn from a small on board water tank, and will not require a high pressure, on board hydrogen storage tank or hydrogen fueling station.

The Scorpion wil have a carbon fiber body (manufactured by www.metalcrafters.com) mounted on a racing-derived chrome-moly chassis.

The engine will be the latest 3.5 liter V6 Acura V-Tech,
Type S, power-plant from the 2008 TL TypeS, coupled with a close ratio sixspeed
transmission and and capable of producing 450 horsepower with the twin-turbo option.

Ronn Motor Company ScorpionThanks to the hybrid powerplant and to other fuel saving measures, the "Scorpion", highway fuel economy will be in the 40 mpg range.

The Scorpion is currently in pre-production and Ronn Motor Company plans for it to be available to consumers this fall.

The announced price is $150,000 and the company is accepting refundable deposits of $50,000.

First deliveries will begin on last quarter of 2008, and first year production will be limited to 200 units.
