A 1976 Ferrari 308 GTS has been salvaged into an electric classic, and is up for auction in Scottsdale.
Replacing the 2.9L V8 are three HPEVS AC-51 electric motors, each producing about 88 hp and 146 Nm (108 ft-lbs) of torque, paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox (G50 Porsche transaxle). There’s a 47 kWh battery pack contained in custom aluminium and carbon fibre boxes. The seller claims a top speed of 185 mph (298 km/h).
Restoration work includes body and paint, rebuilt suspension including QA1 coilovers, custom Giro-disc racing brake package, Euro-bumper conversion, LED lighting and 18-inch BBS factory Ferrari wheels (4 Ferrari 360 front wheels).
The interior was completely re-done to a higher quality using Italian leather throughout, as well as custom electric GT GPS speedometer and tachometer.
The car is being sold on a salvage title.
