This is not Mustang, but an electric-powered Aviar R67

Electrified Muscle Car There is almost no automotive fan who does not know the Mustang as one of the legendary American muscle cars made by the Ford Motor Company which has been around since the 1960s. Besides having a distinctive appearance, it is also very powerful, so it's not surprising that many people like it.

Talking about the Mustang, in the current context where's the trend of electrification of motorized vehicles booming and has also been followed by many big car manufacturers including Ford. Well, as we all know that the American automaker has also launched a modern version of the electric-powered steed named the Mustang Mach-E. But as good as the Mach-E was, there're many diehard Mustang fans whose might think that isn't a typical American muscle car, but the first fully electric SUV that used the Mustang iconic nameplate.

This is made some kind of a pretty promising business niche because many Mustang fans who still expect a  typical American muscle car looks to accompany the latest eco-friendly powertrains. It seems this opportunity was seized well by the Russian-based company named Aviar Motors.

This Russian-based company is currently hard at work on its latest Aviar R67, a fully electric powered muscle car based on the classic Mustang fastback, according to Motor1. But the custom EV’s retro-inspired design isn’t the only reason for excitement, as the unofficial speedster will also be built atop Tesla’s industry-leading Model S platform.

Of its renderings show the car’s brawny, carbon-fiber body to be primarily inspired by the Mustang fastback of 1967. Anyone with even a passing familiarity with the Ford' classic muscle car will notice the pleasing lines, the memorable silhouette and the iconic grille, though the iconic Mustang badge has been replaced by one that displays the Aviar logo. While inside the car, you’ll find a modern leather-covered interior with a distinct retro-futurist vibe. All in all, it’s a beautiful looking vehicle inside and out.

What’s under the EV’s hood may be just as impressive. The Tesla platform gives the R67 all the electrical components, motors and gearbox you’d find in the Model S. Though still in the prototype stage, Aviar Motors claims on its website that the car’s two motors, which get their power from a 100 kWh battery, are capable of spewing out a staggering 840 horses.

All this power has been put too good use, too, as the company says the car can go from zero to 62 mph in just 2.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 155 mph. The R67'd range is nothing to dismiss either, as Aviar claims it will go 315 miles on single charge. These numbers are almost certainly optimistic, but if the vehicle can even get close, it will be one mighty impressive EV.
Unfortunately, until now there's no release date has been announced for the R67. And for those who can’t wait, there are other electrified Mustang options out there. In addition to Ford’s officially sanctioned crossover, there’s a 536 hp option from Charge Cars that is currently open reservation for similar kind of car. Still, if the thought of more than 800 horses has your tongue wagging, you’ll probably want to wait. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AVIAR MOTORS | MOTOR1 | CHARGE CARS | ROBBREPORT | HYPERBEAST | GEARMOOSE ]
