Black Current – Electric Dragster under 10secs 1/4 Mile

Two brothers from Hungerford, Sam & Olly Young,  have not only managed to piece together a fully working electric car from a 1965 VW Beetle shell and an old milk float but they have by some amazing feat managed to make it go from 0-60 in 1.6 secs, it can eat a 1/4 mile in less than 10 secs (9.51 to be exact) and it crossed the finish line doing 135mph!!

Now I don’t know about you but I think there would be a rather large queue at the dairy when they advertised a vacancy as a float driver if these boys where the mechanics there!! I know I’d love to have a go, the acceleration must be amazing and the whole experience quite surreal as I associate fast-moving motor vehicles (dragsters being at the top of this thought pile) to be loud but this Black Tarmac eating Machine has a very quaint hum about it.

The long and short of it is I want a Morris Minor version please LOL
