We've shown you pictures of the electric HST Shelby Cobra 427 before sitting pretty while on display at EVS23 but now we have video of this sexy carbon fiber machine being propelled by its own 300 horses and 1000 lb-ft worth of spinning and drifting power. All the while the machine is churning up clouds of tire smoke, it's being expertly guided by the gifted hands of Lisa Klassen, rally driver and drifter extraordinaire. Ms. Klassen found herself behind the wheel of the Cobra after getting a call from her rally driver pal, Tanner Foust, who hosts the SpeedTV show "SuperCars Exposed" asking her to fill in for him on a segment covering the electric monsters from HST. Although Tanner made it to the set to do some canyon-road driving, Lisa took full advantage of her time with the car making donuts and generally getting a feel for the EV which is capable of 3.2 second 0 to 60 times and a 150 mph top end. You can read Lisa's take on the electrified drive over at Urban Racer and warch the whole episode on iTunes. Hit the jump for smokin' excerpts from the episode.
