DailyDirt: Classic Cars 2.0
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
Cars have changed a lot over the past hundred years, and sometimes new cars don’t quite look so great. It’d be nice to see some classic cars get modern technology in them, but it ain’t simple or inexpensive. Check out a few of these classic cars that might get a modern makeover.
- There’s a converted 1978 Ferrari 308GTS with a range of about 80 miles. San Diego-based company, Electric GT, salvaged an old Ferrari and replaced its V8 internal combustion engine with 3 electric motors and a bunch of batteries. [url]
- Jaguar is re-making a limited run of its 1950s XKSS supercars — with some modern technology. For £1 million, you get a classic supercar that handles like a modern vehicle — but it’ll still have the same specs with a 340 horsepower 3.8L engine (no electric motors). [url]
- If you prefer a classic American muscle car, you can get 95% of the parts for a 1964-66 Ford Mustang straight from Ford. You could build a classic Mustang on your own assembly line if you wanted, but it wouldn’t be cheap. [url]
