Le Mans type racers are popular vehicles to transform into an electric race monster. We have seen Drayson Racing that used a Lola chassis and the students from Imperial College London ‘raced’ through North and South America with an electric Radical. An ambitious project from Down Under has now popped up. The company ELMOFO (Electro Motive Force) has electrified a Radical too, carrying the name SREV.
The car is similar to the V8 powered Radical SR8, but has Dual AMRacing IPM Electric Motors and Kokam High Power Lithium Polymer batteries. This combination can produce 310 kW and the car reaches a top speed of 265 km/h. But most importantly, it is faster than the regular SR8 model (see videos).
Their primary objective is to get an Electric Radical Class off the ground.
