New sports car and electric racing car to debut at the Sustainable MotoExpo in September

Bluebird will launch its DC50 sports car at the Sustainable MotoExpo in September.

The 360bhp electric car, which will be built in a limited production run of 50 units, is designed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Donald Campbell's land and water speed records. The car will go on sale in 2014.

The two-door coupé has a range of up to 200 miles, depending on specification, and has electrically operated scissor doors. It will be available in just one colour, dubbed Bluebird blue.

The Sustainable MotoExpo will also be used to launch an electric race car from Bluebird. The GTL electric racer will make its motorsport debut during the FIA Formula E series in 2014.

Fact: Vauxhall had a colour called Bluebird in the early 70s, available on the Viva GT, Firenza, VX4/90 and (maybe) Ventora. I hereby claim my prize of a pre-loved anorak.
