A 450 HP OFF-ROAD LIGHTNING BOLT STRIKES THE DESERT

Ed Pearlman founded the National Off-Road Racing Association’s Mexican 1000 in 1967, and you’d think the pioneering ex-Marine would approve of this particular entry. A collaborative effort between fabrication outfit Strategic Racing Designs (SRD) and engine-supplier EV West ... CONTINUE

EV BUGGY HAS 750 TORQUES 
And enough energy on board to power a house for a week. We’ll take two…

Yep, this 535hp, 750 lb ft open-wheeler's called the SR1 EV1, and it's been built by SRI, SRD and EV West, the chaps that made a man called Bill very happy last year. It doesn't have the juice to attack the full 1200-mile race, but it'll be taking it on in bitsize portions. And if this video's anything to go by, it won't do too badly at all... VIEW

One thousand miles of treacherous open desert, 750 lb ft of torque at zero rpm and a top speed of 125 mph; that’s what's in store for the drivers of the EV1 electric off-road racer. Not exactly your father’s Prius, this vehicle dedicated to proving the legitimacy of "green racing" is... CONTINUE

YOU CAN'T IGNORE THE AWESOMENESS OF A POWERFUL ELECTRIC DUNE BUGGY 

The same people who drove an incredibly fast electric BMW M3 up Pikes Peak this May are back with something even more exciting: an all-electric offroad racecar built for the Baja 1000. Even though it boasts 535 hp and 750 ft.-lbs. of torque, EV West's SRI EV1 race vehicle's powertrain is mostly silent. Powered by a 400kW, 2000aH hot-swappable battery pack, the lack of a high-revving motor means the driver hears a symphony of suspension sounds and crunching gravel... CONTINUE

EV WEST AND PARTNERS BUILD ELECTRIC OFF-ROAD BAJA RACER
No, it’s not a reincarnation of GM’s visionary but premature EV1 - far from it. The Strategic Recovery Institute (SRI)’s EV1, which was unveiled in October at the Lucas Oil Off-Road Expo in Los Angeles, is a fully electric off-road vehicle with 535 hp and 750 ft-lbs of torque.

I DROVE A WICKED FAST ELECTRIC BMW AND IT MADE BE A BELIEVER IN EV RACING

Whenever I hear someone say "electric cars are the future" I just shake my head and laugh. Sure, all those gas cars, millions of them, along with thousands of gas stations will disappear over night.

And all the muffler shops and emission centers, too! And then I try remember the last time I walked into a Blockbuster Video and it convinces me that the world changes rapidly. I bet steam engines disappeared the same way. Why bother with water and warming up when you have fuel? CONTINUE
