Ford GT40 Battery-Electric Replica – Car Engine with Virtual Switching and V8 Sound

The battery-electric conversion of the Ford GT40 imitation produced by the Superformance workshop will make the legendary car future-proof in the British Everrati workshop, using only the existing mounting points during the conversion, so in theory the design can even be converted to a petrol engine. Two drive motors are installed in the rear, with a system power of 800 horsepower and 800 Nm, which is enough for an acceleration of 0-100 km / h for more than 4 seconds and a top speed of over 200 km / h.

The 700-volt high-voltage batteries, housed in several parts, have a capacity of 60 kWh, which provides a range of more than 200 km, and 80 kW lightning can be charged, in which case 80% charge can be achieved in 45 minutes. The 1320 kg unladen weight is 47 kg lower than the fully refueled weight of the contemporary racing car, and the 40/60% weight distribution is more even (the same was 38/62% for the racing car launched at LeMans).


To preserve the driving experience, when the “Race” mode is activated, when touched by the shift lever otherwise used, the electronics interrupt the acceleration for a moment, and the 110 dB V8 engine sound from the speakers does so – they also hide the subwoofers in the seats. vibration caused to remind passengers of V8 engine operation.
