Did anyone see the Wheeler Dealers installing an electric motor in a Maserati last evening? Shame it was set in California, I could see that being done to a Scimitar!. Or are there people in the UK doing this sort of thing?

i did see it and thought 'damn' should not have sold the 330 :-) although I suspect I'd have to have uprated the gearbox/axle as they were prone to breaking once upped the torque from bigger engine (850 vs 701 :shock: ) but given tehtorque from an AC induction/ FLT motor, straight onto axle?

FLT?
Well they're not very fast, are they? And look at the size of their batteries...…….

Sorry; bit bored here...

the cunning plan was to put the batteries in the trailer :-)

and an FLT motor will easily wizz up to 2000rpm, more than enough for nipping around town.

and yes I like the SS1/GTE hybrid as well, 480, where have I seen one (or two) of those :wink:
