This is not a particularly special Bugeye (at least not yet).
We are about to make it special with an electric drivetrain. Welcome to our second electric conversion. With 0-60 times at about 10 seconds (about half of the original), 100 mile range, and smooth torque whenever you want it, this is exciting, for us, for the car, and for the customer!
We’ll dress up the interior and make it look like a nice stock driver. Under the hood will be a powerful electric motor with gobs of torque, along with the high tech batteries to power it. In it’s new guise, this car will go from garage furniture to a reliable and fun machine.
Everything you see below in the engine bay will be removed. It’s all pretty worn out anyway. Nothing against restoring cars in this condition… we do this every month. But this particular car would cost a fortune to fully restore because of prior rear end crash damage. As an electric FrogE, that history is no longer a liability. This is the perfect platform for conversion. We have not removed a concours car from circulation, but instead taken another Bugeye out of hibernation.
We’ll use proper parts in the interior so that it still looks authentic. For example, we only use analog gauges, so that the interior still looks accurate. Our goal is to preserve the DNA of the car, while upgrading the powertrain.
Stay tuned! You can see a walk around video below.
