How to build the world's quickest, street-legal EV dragster...  

Nearly 10 years ago Jonny Smith embarked on this extreme electric project car build – which became the world’s quickest street legal EV.

Starting with the least likely of base cars, a British electric city car from the 1970s and rebuilding it with almost 1000hp, this video tells the retrospective story of why and how Jonny went about converting the 1974 Enfield 8000 ECC (Electric City Car) to become an extreme electric drag car.

… It went on to clinch the world record (in 2016): a 9 second quarter mile… In a 9ft long car with no traction control or launch control.
