White Zombie - The World’s Fastest Electrical Powered Car

For years now we have always heard and thought that electrical cars will never be able to produce as much power as a fossil fueled powered car, but this is all set to change. John Wayland the developer of the White Zombie, an electrical powered 1972 Datsun 1200 2-door sedan is busting this myth and doing it in style, challenging the v8 petrol heads on the drag strip.

The White Zombie a full electrical powered 1972 Datsun is the world record holder for the fast street legal electric vehicle and runs the 1/4 mile at an impressive 11.4 seconds @ 114 mph, which is just as fast as a 2006 v8 Chevrolet Corvette. The Datsun optimized for 1/4 mile runs, rather than range is also a proud member of the "100 mph Club".

John Wayland, also known as Plasma Boy developed the car to show his independence and to decrease the carbon footprint. What John has done with his Datsun is truly eye opening and makes you think how long the big fuel companies have washed our minds, when it comes to the trough of electrical powered cars. He is a true pioneer to enter this uncharted area and it is a pity there are not many others following in his footsteps.
