Black Current III: Electric Drag Race Bug

The Black Current III is the work of two European brothers named Olly and Sam Young, who started the project six years ago when they dropped a milk truck motor they'd found into a VW Beetle. Now the car claims the title of Fastest Zero Emissons car in Europe thanks to two electric fork truck motors, 60 Odyssey PC680 12V batteries and a Zilla 2K motor controller all delivering 1200 lb-ft of torque to the ground.

[...] 0-to-60 MPH time around 3.0 seconds and a quarter-mile run of 11.24 seconds at 114 MPH [...]
