This may look like a golf buggy posing as an electric car but this is one of the most powerful electric vehicles we’ve come across yet. With a price tag of $108,000, the ‘120-M.P.H. Electric Car’ will accelerate from 0-60mph in four seconds flat and reach a top speed of 120mph with just one gear. It features two electric motors - smaller versions of the same kind found in diesel-electric locomotives - that combine to produce over 1,354Nm (1,000lb-ft) of torque.
The vehicle’s chassis is made of stainless steel and features an integrated roll-cage for added safety. The body panels are made of carbon fiber, Kevlar, and fiberglass, and its side impact bars are claimed to offer four times the protection found in typical SUVs. The car generates no emissions and operates from a set of lead-acid batteries that can recharge using any power outlet up to 50 amps, providing enough power for a range of 40-80 miles.
If you can wait for the Tesla Roadster to ever be completed then head over to Hammacher Schlemmer
and order your 120-M.P.H. Electric Car today, and yes we’re just as shocked as you are about hearing of this bizarre contraption.
Thanks to Justin for sending in the tip.
