I like a nice Spitfire anyway, but the image sprang from an article entitled "Top 5 Electric Vehicle Conversions".
Now that captured my interest.
Along the way I also found this article with a little bit of detail in it of this...
and.....It was converted as a High School project
Regards NeilBuilt by North Johnston High School students in Kenly, NC this car was designed for participation in the Carolina Electric Vehicle Challenge. This car proves that electric cars don't have to be slow, difficult to drive or ugly! Competing against high schools from across the southeast US, the Spitfire was recognized at the competition as being the best designed and constructed vehicle there, and on the autocross track clearly dominated the competition!
