Flux Capacitor breaks the Electric Vehicle speed record

Jonny Smith has produced a ground-shaking, record-breaking electric car capable of accelerating up to 113mph in just six seconds. Delivering 800hp and 1200lbft of torque from 188 lithium-ion battery cells built into the boot and under the bonnet, and generating 2000 amps and 400 volts to a pair of DC 9-inch motors to drive the back wheels.

Originally, the Enfield 8000, a tiny British built electric car was manufactured during the oil crisis in the 1970’s and after having been converted by Jonny it is now the worlds’ quickest street legal Electric Vehicle, after running the quarter mile at Santa Pod in 9.86 seconds at an average 121mph.

Capable of out-pacing the likes of the Lamborghini Aventador, McLaren’s 650S, a Porsche 911 Turbo, Nissan GT-R and even Tesla’s P90D, the little electric car is still road legal, tax exempt and even London congestion charge exempt.
