0-121mph in 9.86 seconds
THE WORLD’S QUICKEST STREET LEGAL EV IS…………….2.84 metres long, yellow and often mistaken for a Reliant Kitten. I can barely believe it myself, but the Flux Capacitor Enfield 8000 is the world’s quickest (and possibly fastest) electric car with an MoT and tax. On 15-17 July at Santa Pod raceway’s Dragstalgia event we altered the […]
As quick as an £800,000 Porsche 918 Spyder.
With MoT. Free road tax. Except from London Congestion Charge. No exhaust pipe. Pointless 1980s earthing strip. No wheelies. Yet. You can see from Julian Hunt’s pics below that the Enfield is squatting down much harder on launch, for two reasons: Firstly we’re putting more power through the car – currently the control system’s maximum […]
And now for a video intermission
My computer is a bit ill, so we’re still working on editing the onboard footage of my world record runs. They should be out next week. I write this still shaking my head in disbelief that the Enfield can run a 9 sec quarter mile without ANY aerodynamic alteration. No wings, lips, gills added to […]
PICTURES SPEAK A THOUSAND WORDS
Better still, pictures showing numbers. Here is a photo I will always be proud of. And here’s just another gratuitous tyre smoke photograph. Because #EVmuscle. Thanks once again to everyone with a sticker on the side of my car. All of you have been instrumental in the Flux Capacitor Enfield getting this far and performing […]
9 SECOND STREET CAR WITH NO EXHAUST
THE WORLD’S QUICKEST STREET LEGAL EV IS…………….2.84 metres long, yellow and often mistaken for a Reliant Kitten. I can barely believe it myself, but the Flux Capacitor Enfield 8000 is the world’s quickest (and possibly fastest) electric car with an MoT and tax. At this weekend’s Santa Pod raceway Dragstalgia event we altered the rear […]
Flux Capacitor now faster than a McLaren 650S
I first ran the Enfield back in March while filming a new forthcoming BBC Worldwide TV series called Motorheads. The weather was cold (sub 10 degrees) at Santa Pod and we were carrying a passenger in the shape of my co-presenter Tom Wookie Ford. It ran consistent early 11s, – not bad given the weather […]
WORLD’S QUICKEST STREET EV IN 2016?
The Enfield 8000 Flux Capacitor rolled into 2016 having reached a 10 second quarter mile as a street car that’s totally useable for average journeys. From taking my daughter to school in it to completing the mandatory 26-mile street cruise around Northamptonshire to qualify for the Street Eliminator drag race category (where if you break […]
Retro EV burnout: the Flux Cap’s filthy habit
Retro EV burnout: the Flux Cap’s filthy habit Electric vehicles are quiet, smokeless and clean, right? Well, not the Flux Capacitor, which has a filthy, smelly habit. Voted the most impressive burnout at Car Fest against cars with, you know, actual engines, we thought it would be fun to set some of the highlights to […]
Bobby’s Fully Charged!
A massive thanks to Mr Red Dwarf EV evangelist Robert Llewellyn, who came to my place for a chat and drive in the Flux Capacitor. Judging by the giggles I think he enjoyed himself. Some tyres were harmed in the making of this video… Special thanks to Nicky boy Farrow at www.gasit.co.uk for always being […]
Behold! Europe’s Quickest Street Legal EV
Apologies for going quiet on the blog recently. If you’ve been following me via Twitter (@carpervert) you may know that since late April the Flux Capacitor became track-worthy and ready for shakedown. Here is what happened when I first got behind the wheel after 3 years of getting the Flux Cap to this level. Be […]
