50 years after the ravishing Porsche 910 took part in the iconic 24 hours race from Le Mans in 1967, the Austrian electro-mobility specialist Kreisel Electric has revealed a mind boggling electric conversion of this beauty. Dubbed as the Kreisel EVEX 910e, this unique electric racer is capable of reaching 300 km/h, accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds and the best thing is that it’s actually licensed for the use on public roads.
Developed in collaboration with EVEX Fahrzeugbau GmbH, this electric sportscar is a very limited-run offer, but don’t worry; we’re sure just a lucky few could afford to splash out one million Euros on this electric racer – that’s the official price tag of this ride. But the collector value of the original Porsche 910 sports car is incredible as well.
Kreisel and Evex started working on the conversion of this beauty last year and developed a special 2-speed automated transmission for this project, delivering the thrills of a lifetime with an impressive gear transmission ratio of 8.16 in the 1st gear and 4.67 in the second gear. The car also packs a self-locking differential and an integrated electric oil pump to ensure lubrication and cooling and the Austrians will also offer this unique transmission as a standalone product.
In terms of power, a 53 kW/h high-performance battery pack was installed in the Kreisel EVEX 910e and promises a range of 350 km. You probably realize that the original frame of this supercar had to be upgraded to cope with the extra weight of the batteries, but its performances are even more incredible on electric power. The battery pack can be charged rapidly and even enables an intelligent energy management in combination with a photovoltaic installation – similar to Tesla concepts.
