Mini with Tesla transmission

Tesla Powered Classic Austin Mini

Gildred Racing collaborated with Electric Classic Cars to create a remarkable 1971 Austin Mini Mk3. The original 998 cc inline-four engine was replaced with a powerful Tesla Model S electric transmission, boasting an impressive 300 horsepower.

This electric conversion is supported by a 31 kWh battery pack which allows the car to travel up to 150 miles on a single charge. Additionally, the car features a performance suspension system, Cooper S 7.5-inch front disc brakes, and Mini rear drum brakes, all of which are mounted behind 10×5-inch wheels.

This unique and innovative project showcases the potential of electric vehicle conversions and highlights the exciting possibilities for classic car enthusiasts.
