The Kreisel EVEX 910e handles speeds above 300 kilometres per hour, accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds and – in contrast to the historical original by Porsche – is licensed for the use on public roads.
In cooperation with the EVEX Fahrzeugbau GmbH this vehicle is available as a limited edition. The price for the first purchasable electric car by Kreisel: one million Euros.
Kreisel and EVEX started working on the conversion of the vehicle last year in August. To enable the breathtaking acceleration and the maximum speed, Kreisel developed a 2-speed automated transmission with a gear transmission ratio of 8.16 (in 1st gear) and 4.67 (in 2nd gear), as well as self-locking differential and integrated, electric oil pump to ensure lubrication and cooling. The Austrians also offer the transmission as a standalone product.
The high-performance (lithium-ion) battery pack, with a capacity of 53 kilowatt-hours, which is installed in the Kreisel EVEX 910e, weights 1.100 kilograms and enables a realistic range of 350 kilometres. To accommodate the battery system as well as the powertrain in the rear, the frame of the original vehicle was slightly modified. Besides that the air-cooling of the historical vehicle was replaced by a cooling system which Kreisel developed for the high-performance drive.
Is this the futur?
Old, iconic styles, copied with modern electro power. Maybe you will own the original car, perfectly restored and not to be moved, and to drive around in an eco-friendly (or maybe not thinking about the batteries) powerd classic-car shape.
It will be the responsibility of fairs, races and classic car clubs to keep the pure thing alive and not to give them space and chance to participate.
