Behold: the Charge Electric Ford Mustang – one of 499 first generation (1965 – 1973) Mustangs with their oily old gizzards swapped out for quad electric motors by UK EV startup Charge.

The 64Kw/h battery is good for 320km in cruise mode but considerably less if you engage the full 536bhp four wheel drive. Top speed is 240km/h but the thing will accelerate to 100km/h in less than 3 seconds.

Debuting next month at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and yours for €335,000.

      Actually, I think this is a good idea. An ability for people to keep the old muscle cars operational, without worrying about the problems of obtaining petrol in future days. I would not use it for my runabout Opel Astra, but for certain cars of a particular aesthetic, this is I think a good option.

        I see that, but it’s like putting tits on a bull. Muscle cars are just that, not 320 Kms of hopeful.

    The problem is that classic cars don’t do the mileage to justify the carbon cost of the batteries
