Translogic 180: Zombie 222 Electric '68 Mustang

We Drive Blood Shed Motors' Record-Setting EV 'Stang

Translogic heads to Austin, TX for a chance to drive the all-electric Zombie 222, a 1968 Ford Mustang converted by Mitch Medford and his team at Blood Shed Motors.

"I wanted to start a company that would do nothing but specialize in converting vintage iconic cars into supercars," said Medford.

The Zombie 222 has classic looks, but modern performance with over 800 horsepower and 1,800 ft-lbs of torque, making it the fastest electric car we've ever driven on Translogic. Those mind-blowing specs helped the Zombie 222 conquer the Texas Mile, setting the electric speed record at 174.2 miles per hour.

"The Zombie 222 has been breaking electric records, said Medford. "Now it's time to break records—gas or electric."

Next up for Medford and his Zombie 222 is a Kickstarter-funded attempt at 200 miles per hour. But first, we take a turn behind the wheel.
