Constructed around a box section steel spaceframe, the Borzoi joystick prototype was originally fitted with an injected Peugeot V6 engine of 2.8 litres, giving approximately 200hp.  

 

The car had a double wishbone independent setup, with disc brakes all round and a hybrid twin coil rear, and rubber cone front suspension.

Weighing in at 1,600lbs, the 0-60 time was impressive at around 4 seconds.  A top speed of 170mph was limited by the final drive ratio.  A Renault electronic three speed automatic gearbox was eventually fitted, mated to a more sedate 2.5 litre unit.

The world's fastest electric land speed record car, a blue bird eco streamliner

 

If your land speed record car cannot refuel itself, you are at a huge disadvantage. Blueplanet is around 66% the weight of a car that does not have cartridge exchange refueling for the same motor performance.

 Bluebird cvt electric car transmissions  Blueplanet has inbuilt battery loaders. It does not need a  Bluebird electric motor bird logo  

complicated service station to refuel itself in under 2 minutes.
