This car is extremely light even with the two battery boxes that we've installed.
Conversion Timegoing on 4 months. Financing this car has taken some time not to mention how long it took to receive our custom batteries.
Conversion CostYou don't want to know. but if you curious I'm sure you can figure it out with the info that I've provided.
Additional FeaturesThis car is luxurious as heck. we've installed a dashboard computer that we custom designed in order to monitor all of the on going's of the car. We've also installed a custom audio set up due to the fact that this car is whisper quite it will blow your mind how smooth the sound is. We may still install a set of Super Capacitors if the car still doesn't hit the performance numbers that our customer wants
(11s quarter mile, 4 sec to 60). Check back before the end of September and I will post performance numbers.
This is a conversion that we have nearly finished for a customer of ours down in Sedona. this will be by far the fastest conversion car that we have ever built we expect performance close to that of the Tesla.
