The electrification of the classics is gaining momentum. We have already seen the battery-operated restomods of the first Mustanga and Jaguar E-type, Mini and Blazer… And this is not a complete list. Next in line – the classic “24 Hours of Le Mans”, the original Ford GT40 in an electric role. This is the fruit of cooperation between the British company Everrati and the American studio Superformance.
Superformance produces replicas of a number of historic cars under license from copyright holders (as chassis for the installation of internal combustion engines), including the same GT40 from the 1960s. It was the Superformance model that was taken as a basis for further redrawing by the young company Everrati (created in 2019). Everrati co-founder and CEO Justin Lanney said, “Lance Stender (Director of Superformance) and his team are the right guys when it comes to legal sequels to some of the most iconic cars in history. Combining their chassis with our advanced electric vehicle powertrains and precision engineering will enhance performance while retaining the essence and soul of the original. ”
Everrati has not yet set a price for its new creation and has not revealed full specifications. However, it has already been announced that the 811-horsepower electric motor will allow such a two-door to gain 60 mph (97 km / h) from a standstill in less than four seconds. The power reserve on a single charge will be more than 200 km. The project partners have promised to reveal more details in the coming months.
