The current iteration features 300 lithium iron phosphate cells in a battery pack that provides a claimed range of with 110 miles — roughly a full day of drag racing, drifting or general hooning. Propulsion comes from a DC motor designed and built by VST; it churns out a whopping 900 horsepower. That’s good for a Tesla-beating 0-60 time of 3.3 seconds. Keep the pedal mashed to the floor and you’ll see a top speed of 174 mph. That’s on par with some of the best high-performance sports cars on the road today, and it makes this homebuilt EV a worthy competitor to high-end electrics like the Audi eTron.
