By Paul Joseph

London-based electric vehicle designer and manufacturer Charge Automotive has created a a fully-electric classic Ford Mustang with a body-shell from the 1960s.

For the project, the company teamed up with engineers who previously worked at Williams F1, McLaren Automotive, and Jaguar Land Rover.

The electric car has an officially licensed Ford Mustang body-shell, available in both Fastback and convertible versions.

It is fitted with a 64kWh battery pack paired to an electric motor producing 300kW power and 1,200Nm of torque – equivalent of over 400bhp and a tarmac-ripping 885lb ft of torque.

While the maximum range on a single charge is just 125-miles, it is capable of accelerating from zero to 60mph in just over 3 seconds.

Pricing starts at $256,000 and the company plans to build a grand total of 499 of them.

One of the most iconic cars of the 20th century, the Ford Mustang first went into production in 1964, designed by John Najjar, Phillip T. Clark, Joe Oros and Ale Halderman.
