With a body taken from an American racing car legend and a dose of Silicon Valley start-up tech under the hood, the Renovo Coupe looks set to turn up our perception of what an electric car can do.
Renovo Motors, a Silicon Valley start-up, takes rolling chassis from Shelby American and fits them with an innovative electric drivetrain, aiming to become a super high-performance electric car.
What looks like a Shelby Daytona Coupe, goes like a 911 Turbo S and uses no traditional fuel? The Renovo Coupe. It's a car bred in Silicon Valley and it's the first American all-electric supercar. After four and a half years of working in secret, the car is ready to be seen and we caught up with its creators at Pebble Beach 2014 for a chat about the most exciting new EV on the block.
My personal car of tomorrow looks like a 1964 Shelby with hydrogen fuel cells, airless tires, self-driving tech and an exterior grown from seed.
Audi teams up with Renovo to offer three bicycles made with wood frames.
