Remember when electric vehicles were just toasters on wheels? Not anymore! Especially with vehicles like this banana-colored all-electric Varley evR450 sports car. Varley is an Australian company that up until now has made nothing but utilitarian electric baggage carts and the like. Then, out of the blue, here’s this speed demon. So, what’s under the hood?

Well they won’t let anyone take photos under the bonnet yet, but the Varley evR450 is claimed to get to 0-60 miles per hour in 3.8 seconds–on par with a Ferrari–and top out at 124.3 miles per hour. The base model is said to have a battery range of 93 miles and cost about $213,000. A 186-mile battery pack is also in the works. Besides the price, this car could easily compete with the Tesla Roadster with those looks, if they can get it up and running. But switching practically overnight from airport haulers to halo cars is quite a feat, so we’ll give Varley a few years to iron out the kinks and make a success of the evR450. It sure got the design part right.
