Québec-based startup Dubuc Motors announced that it will try to raise $25 million through crowdfunding in order to build its all-electric 2+2 sports car: the Tomahawk. The company is using Start Engine to test the waters under the SEC’s new crowdfunding rules.

Dubuc has been promoting its Tomahawk for a while now and the group has been making some impressive claims. On its website, the company says it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds and travel 300 miles on a single charge.

The startup is trying to join an increasingly crowded space of exotic and luxury electric sports cars with the likes of Rimac, Renovo, Detroit Electric and others.

Time will tell if they can manage to carve themselves a space in the industry, but going the crowdfunding way is certainly… interesting. You can learn more on Dubuc’s Start Engine page and below you’ll find the Tomahawk’s long list of specs.:
