Tesla Powered “Blue Lightning” Lotus Evora EV Conversion Hits The Track…Is Awesome – Video
Thanks to many updates from OnPointDyno‘s Sasha Anis, we have been following a very unique Lotus Evora EV conversion via a Tesla Motor S electric motor and powered by a couple Chevrolet Volt 16 kWh batteries.
The result is “Blue Lightning”, a ~460 hp all-electric supercar, that we have watched moved from the an early development stage, to hitting the dyno for testing, to its first impromptu on-road drive…to now arriving on a proper track to stretch its legs.
The end result is that the Lotus Evora brings home a better track time than a Audi R8 V10 Plus timed early (see 13:03 mark of video).
Better still, the refinement level of the conversion is off the charts, check out this dash readout assembly:
As per Speed Acadamy via our friend Sasha:
“The Tesla electric motor powered Lotus Evora electric car is ready for its first track test and it turns some seriously fast laps! The only downside, it needs to be recharged and without a fast charging system on side, towing it is the fastest option.”
