For the upcoming 2021 holiday season, Superformance, a company behind the most luxurious racing replicas, and Vintage Electric, the builder of the fastest electric bike in the US, joined forces to create the ultimate gift for Shelby enthusiasts. The companies unveiled two EV Cobra models – a metallic blue MKIII-E Cobra EV and a special edition two-wheeled snake from Vintage Electric bikes.
Both EV Cobras feature fast acceleration and all the immediate speed that comes with an EV power curve. The new Superformance MKIII-E is fitted with a Tesla Model S rear-drive motor punctuated by an impressive 1500 pound-feet of torque. The car also features a custom-made battery pack with two LG Energy 16-cell units paired in a 32-kWh pack to establish up to 100 miles of range. The ultra-lightweight engineless car runs on a set of sticky 275/35-18 Nitto tires and offers specially tuned regenerative braking.
The limited-edition Vintage Electric Shelby bike is inspired by Carroll Shelby’s personal metallic blue 289 Slabside. This Shelby e-bike even features a two-wheel hot rod that pays homage to the iconic Cobra.
It is outfitted in the exact matching blue metallic N6 paint scheme as Carroll’s personal 289 Cobra with matte black racing stripes and iconic Shelby logo alongside distinctive Cobra badging. The new Vintage Electric throttle bike features a massive 48-volt battery along with a potent 1,123-watt battery cell. The large battery is housed in a matte black cast-aluminum housing that only requires 4.5 hours to be charged. After a full charge, the Vintage Electric Shelby reliably offers up to a 75-mile range. The new bike includes a specially tuned Race mode that is capable of speeds up to 36 mph on private-property/closed-courses.
The EV Cobra bundle from Superformance and Vintage Electric is available at a price of $190,000.
