Home built electric car wins V8 race

A New Zealand mechanic’s, battery-powered, rebuilt, 1972 coupe has just caused shock among horrified V8 petrol-heads, by winning the street car class in the New Zealand Drag Racing Association’s latest season. 

Tom Short’s little yellow Datsun 1200 can clear a quarter mile in a lightning-fast 14 seconds. And you don’t hear it when it does.
