A Russian company – Aviar Motors – is planning an electric classic Ford Mustang Fastback lookalike complete with an 840bhp electric powertrain – the Aviar R67.
Recreating classic cars with modern underpinning is becoming more and more of a thing, with everything from David Brown’s modern take on a 1960s Aston Martin DB to an ever-expanding selection of modernised classics coming from Dany Bahar’s Ares Design.
But what we’re also starting to see is a way for classic cars to be made future-proof with electric drivetrains, with both Jaguar and Aston Martin going that route. Put both routes together and you have the Aviar R67.
The Aviar R67 is a bit shrouded in mystery, but Aviar Motors appears to be a new Russian car maker – according to Motor.ru – planning a classic Ford Mustang Fastback lookalike with an electric powertrain developed by KB Arkhipov.
The plan is to deliver a classic American Muscle Car complete with an electric drivetrain with a pair of electric motors delivering 840bhp and 713lb/ft of torque, good for 62mph in a ridiculous 2.2 seconds, a 100kWh battery pack and a range of over 300 miles.
Inside, the R67 is much more modern than the classic exterior, complete with big central touchscreen and panoramic roof, all sitting on top of a modern carbon fibre frame and adaptive air suspension.
Whether this electric classic Mustang is anything more than a dream we’ll have to wait and see, but the plan is to deliver cars for around £400k.
