This classic 1968 Mustang outputs 800bhp from its electric motors

Attached Image Classic muscle cars are usually fast, loud and pretty much 'in your face'. Ever wonder how a muscle car would be like without the 'loud' part?
 
Here's how it would look like. Made by Mitch Medford, who started Bloodshed Motors, this super fast 1968 Mustang can do 0-100km/h in 2.4 seconds and blaze through the quarter mile in 10.7 seconds at 201km/h. All this is done via its 1.1 megawatt battery pack which is capable of 1,400bhp but dialed back down to 800bhp for 'normal' use. Torque produced from the motors is a crazy 2,438Nm. 
 
Called the Zombie 222, the mustang aimed to break two records. The first is for fastest electric street car at the Texas Mile which stands at 250km/h and the other is an unofficial record where Carroll Shelby, an icon of American muscle as big as the Mustang itself, was said to do 272km/h while helping Goodyear test the durability of their new tyres.
 
Watch the video to see whether Medford managed to beat the records and let us know how you feel about having a muscle car that does not make any noise at all.
