Europe's quickest electric car - Flux Capacitor - which in fact is a hardcore conversion of the Enfield 8000 ECC, got its 5 minutes of fame in Fully Charged.
Robert Llewellyn's introduction starts with the Oil crisis - 40 years ago, which triggered a decent number of electric car projects with lead-acid batteries. Some of them still await a second lithium-ion life.
Earlier this year, Jonny Smith ran Flux Capacitor at the Santa Pod drag race track. Flux covered the quarter mile in 10.84 seconds at 121.11 mph (0-102 mph in 6.9 seconds).
Originally, the Enfield 8000 ECC wasn't even able to hit a 60-mph top speed, so the electric conversion definitely improved that car's performance.
