Californian start-up company Renovo Motors showcased its all-American electric sports car at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in California.
Named the Renovo Coupé, the car is based around a Shelby Daytona CSX9000 body and chassis but features an electric motor producing 493bhp and 1000lb ft of torque. Its makers say the Renovo Coupé can reach 60mph in 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of more than 120mph.
Renovo is using new battery technology to reduce the weight of its new model. The technology involves distributing the weight of the battery pack in three places around the vehicle, creating better weight distribution compared with a conventional layout.
Renovo says the Coupé can offer a range of about 100 miles. It can be fully charged from a domestic charging socket in five hours, while a fast charge takes 30 minutes.
Other features include adjustable dampers, 13-inch brake discs with six-piston calipers at the front and four-piston callipers at the rear, and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres.
