Jonny Smith’s dinky Enfield 8000 has succeeded in breaking the European EV quarter mile record this weekend at Santa Pod Raceway.
The modified 1974 electric car managed an official time up the strip of 11.27 seconds at 118.38mph, which beats the previous record by just over two tenths of a second (EDIT: he actually smashed a time of 10.84secs @131mph during testing).
Jonny also took to Twitter to bring us further mind blowing information from the day, announcing that his car, nicknamed the ‘Flux Capacitor’, managed to hit 102mph in just 6.9 seconds. And that’s seriously fast by anyone’ standards!
We’d like to congratulate Jonny and his team, especially the guys at Hyperdrive, for their incredible achievements in such an unlikely base car!
