You may already know about this vehicle, in its original ICE form, as the T-Rex:
The vehicle has been produced with ICE-only propulsion (crotch rocket drivetrain) in Quebec for about 6 years now. You can see the ICE version in action in this video clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cuo1hezmGKQ . Very fun.
The EV version specs (from their web site):
100 KW +
Dimension of the vehicule
13' length, 6' width, 4' height
900 lbs (including battery)
More than 125 mph
Price ( includes charger)
It's one sexy vehicle! I saw a T-Rex (ICE) in real life - a black one driving down the main street of the quiet little city I live in. Talk about a dramatic road presence. Menacing even.
If I had the money, I'd have the EV version of this in a heartbeat.
Now THAT'S elemental driving, and more fun than a stripped metro. This formula of mating a motorcycle back end and a formula ford front has been dickered with since large bore crotch rockets first appeared in the 1980's. It looks like these guys finally did it right. For those of us that like the pure driving experience this looks like a great alternative to a lotus super 7.
I like it!
