Futuristic Swiss electric car gets classic looks
26 May 2009

A Swiss electronics company has created a Tesla rival that looks like a Porsche 550 Spyder.

The Brusa Spyder is powered by two 95 kW electric motors, with one on each rear wheel.

Performance is impressive, with 60mph arriving in just five seconds.

Power comes from a 16 kWh lithium polymer battery pack, which gives a range of 77 miles at 50 miles per hour.

There is a liquid-cooled charger under the bonnet and a full charge reportedly takes four hours when using a 16 amp, 220-volt outlet.
