Australian HyperPower Technologies Develops A 1,340-hp Electric Motor

A 5,360-hp dragster is only one use for HyperPower Technologies’ 1,340-hp electric motor.

  • The electric motor measure 17 inches in diameter.

  • Total output is a direct result of the number of motors on a common shaft.

  • These motors can potentially be used in many applications.


Through years of experience building and racing electric dragster, Top EV Racing has created HyperPower Technologies to help market a breakthrough electric motor. This relatively small unit is capable of great things, namely making lots of power and strong potential for multiple applications.

The electric motor, known as QFM-360-X, measures only 17 inches in diameter and best of all, is scalable. This means that if ten of these are mounted on a single shaft, they will generate a combined 13,400-horsepower.

In order to demonstrate one such scalable application, Top EV Racing founder Michael Fragomeni and his team have assembled four together and drop the electric mill in a Top Fuel-style dragster. With 5,360-horsepower at its disposal, the dragster should be able to reach 124mph (200km/h) in 0.8 seconds, hit 330mph (530km/h) in 3.7 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 380mph (612km/h).

Now, although the dragster is cool, the potential applications for this motor are numerous and can entail everything from aerospace, high-speed rails, hyper-loops to hypercars.

Fragomeni said: “This motor is the culmination of my career’s effort and a notable milestone for our team to now have the (motor) in production, with volume assembly running in parallel.”
