British electric classic car converter Everrati has announced key specs for a Ford GT40 electric supercar, including top speed, acceleration, battery size, power and torque.
Touting the new GT40 specs as “a flagship that sets new standards for electrified classics”, Everrati says the supercar will pack a 60 kWh battery and two motors to deliver 800 hp (596 kW) and 800 torque. Nm through a 700 volt electrical system.
This will, he says, allow the GT40 to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96.5 km/h) in less than 4 seconds and reach a top speed of over 200 km/h.
We hate to be the ones to tell them, but there are already electric cars that can do it: take for example the Plaid Model S, which can do the 0-100 sprint in 2.3 seconds and has a power output of 1,020 kW. Or the Lucid Air, which has a power output of 1,050 kW and does the sprint in 2.6 seconds.
No matter. Everrati is clearly proud of its accomplishments, as seen in the comments of engineering director Mike Kerr: “To sustain a car of the legendary status of the GT40 is both a privilege and an exciting responsibility.
“Everrati provides the world’s best electric cars and preserves the original features of the old masters we work on, so they can be enjoyed by aficionados in the era of zero-emission mobility.”
Mind you, it’s not every day that a classic like the GT40 gets an electric overhaul. According to Everrati, this will be the only all-electric GT40 listed in the official Shelby registry.
When converting the GT40, Everrati has “advanced liquid cooling and thermal and safety management systems to enable high performance road and track use.” The battery can be charged from 20 to 80% at a maximum rate of 80 kW and travel more than 200 km on a single charge.
To ensure that the GT40’s legendary handling and performance remains intact, the company placed the batteries in the sills as well as behind the driver and passenger, providing a 40/60 F/R weight distribution which, according to she is “even better”. than the original 1966 GT40 MKII A that raced at Le Mans (38/62).
Even with the added weight of the batteries, the electric GT40 is lighter than a fully powered ICE GT40, with an empty weight of 1,320 kg.
Other specs include a single-ratio, 6.52:1 reduction transmission system and a race-derived limited-slip differential, which allow the GT40 to benefit from the rapid rise in power through the engines to reach 60 mph in less than four seconds.
If that’s not enough, crows will be delighted to know that the electric GT40 doesn’t have to be silent: by engaging two “twin active sound generators”, the visceral 110dB sound of a V8 exhaust comes into its own. stock.
Kerr says: “A car like the GT40 comes with a heritage and performance that raises high expectations. Through our strategic partnership with Superperformance, we are confident that we have delivered something extraordinary.
“At the same time, our advanced driver-focused visceral engagement technology will allow drivers to access a fully immersive sound experience and rekindle the romance of when the GT40 dominated the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the 1960s. 1960, into a new era of zero-emission electric mobility.
