Aviar R67 All-Electric Muscle Car

There was a time when manufacturers believed that a car with an all-electric powertrain had to look futuristic in its design — and that usually resulted in very ugly vehicles. Thankfully, that time has come and gone. Finally, folks are imbuing iconic styling into these modern mechanical marvels — as is the case with the Aviar R67 all-electric muscle car.

Obviously, this vehicle borrows its styling cues from an American icon, the 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback — and, frankly, it’s gorgeous. But that classic appearance betrays a futuristic power plant: a quartet of in-wheel electric motors that are good for an immensely impressive combined 840 horsepower, giving it the ability to hit 0-62 in just 2.2 seconds with a top speed of over 155 mph. That’s bolstered by a range of 315 miles per charge, carbon fiber bodywork over a rigid and lightweight aluminum frame, and a rear electronic spoiler that deploys at speeds over 75 mph to improve downforce. Pair that with a tech-forward plush interior and this impressive ride looks to be the perfect blend of both yesterday and tomorrow. Let’s just hope the Russian brand can put it into production.
