Sasha Anis from OnPointDyno just sent us the latest update on the project, complete with a video and new gallery of photo (below) giving us a good look at how things are progressing.

After earlier drivetrain tests on the dyno alone, the car is now equipped with both the Tesla powertrain and Chevrolet Volt batteries.

The first launch show great sound, and we are eager to see the performance on the track.

According to video, Blue Lightning put out 440 wheel horsepower, with some potential to improve.
