Ford GT40 replica gets juiced with electric conversion
Once destined for the scrap heap, a 1968 Fiberfab Valkyrie fiberglass replica of an old Ford GT40 was purchased off of eBay by Andrew McClary. He then spent the past two years updating the kit with an electric powertrain. McClary stuffed the kit with an electric motor complete with a battery that provides 38 kilowatt hours of power. The result is what McClary calls the EVGT-40, which can go 120 miles on a single charge and has a top speed of 130 miles per hour. And, yes, the car has solar panels for additional power.
