The Bluebird DC50 will be ready for deliveries next July, Autocar can reveal.
The two-door, pure-electric coupé will be built in a strictly limited production run of 50 units, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Donald Campbell's land and water speed records.
DC50 will be built in two versions, with a high-performance derivative putting out around 360bhp. This version will also use technology originally developed for Bluebird's Formula E GTL electric racer.
A lower-powered version of the DC50 will also be offered, and is expected to have a range of up to 200 miles.
Bluebird Speed Records project director, Martin Rees, told Autocar that half of the planned run has already been allocated to customers: "In terms of the customers we envision that 60 per cent will be collectors, 20 per cent will be users and 20 per cent will be for the high performance derivative".
While Rees is excited about the prospect of having 50 Bluebird vehicles on the road, he says the company isn't looking to enter the mass market: "This is not Bluebird trying to enter mainstream automotive manufacturing.
