Top Gear Build EV

Posted by TurtleGirl On November - 27 - 2009

The presenters of Top Gear are always getting into some kind of mischief of sorts. There not happy to leave cars alone, unless they can fiddle about with them for a while. This past week they have been engaged  in designing and building an electric vehicle. I know, it sounds crazy. Set a time limit of a mere 18 hours, they produced the marvel of rushed engineering and shoddy workmanship you see below. The Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust. Top Gear has built a home-made electric car, a ‘rival’ to the Chevy Volt, and they tested it.

 
TOP GEAR

 
If you watched this week’s Top Gear TV show you’ll know all about the Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust, a car built by Messrs Clarkson, May and Hammond. If you missed it, you can watch it on iPlayer.

here’s a brief review: the Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust is a road legal car/shed that started life as a TVR Chimaera and underwent quite a few modifications to become a 21st-century range-extender, all built for considerably less money than GM would spend… on biscuits.

 


 
Jeremy Clarkson looks so funny in that vehicle

    what made me laugh even more was when they put a diesel generator in the back to recharge the batterys on the move, completely missing the point of an electric car in true Top Gear style lol.
