    Doc Brown Lives! Flux Capacitor Is World’s Fastest Car

    The Flux Capacitor is now the world’s fastest street-legal electric car; Jonny Smith's Flux Capacitor just set a sub-10 second 1/4 mile time at the drag strip.

    Jonathan M. Gitlin, July 19, 2016 (Ars Technica)

    “Jonny Smith's Flux Capacitor is [an Enfield 8000 electric city car (built in small numbers in the 1970s) transformed by a more potent powertrain and, on July 16, it] entered the record books as the world's fastest street-legal EV, running the quarter-mile in 9.87 seconds…[In Back to the Future, the flux capacitor was the core component of Doctor Emmett Brown's time traveling DeLorean and Brown said the flux capacitor made time travel possible. Smith used 44 more cells to supplemente] the existing 144-cell Hyperdrive Innovation lithium-ion battery pack…[and boosted the car from 370v to 400v…The new battery pack also boosts the Flux Capacitor's range to about 50 miles (80km), up from the previous 30 mile/48km range…” click here for more
