Tesla-Powered Ford Mustang-Inspired EV To Be Built By Aviar

Russian firm Aviar wants to seduce muscle-car and EV fans with their ‘60s Ford Mustang-inspired vehicle

  • The carbon-fibre bodied car will be faster than the donor Tesla.

  • The shell will be vintage Mustang+ with modern aerodynamic enhancements.

  • The cabin will be a parts-bin special with Tesla and Mercedes-Benz elements.

If you love the 1960s muscle-car era but are also environmentally conscientious, there will soon be an option for you in the Ford Mustang-inspired Aviar Motors R67.

The finished car you see in the images is a computer-generated rendering that clearly demonstrates the R67’s visual roots. Even so, the electric vehicle is equipped with a front splitter, rear diffuser, side skirts and a rear spoiler that extends from 75 mph (120 km/h). The near entirety of the car is made from carbon fibre which means it’s quite light.

This is necessary to make up for the heavy Tesla drivetrain including the two electric motors and 100-kilowatt lithium-ion battery pack. According to Autoblog, the output is of 840 horsepower which fires the R67 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in only 2.2 seconds, despite its 4,800-lb curb weight.

The cabin, although once more heavily inspired by the Mustang, features the latest technology including Tesla’s large portrait-oriented touchscreen, to compliment a digital-looking IP. It is through these screens, we assume, that Tesla’s Autopilot semi-autonomous driving features will be controlled. Air vents are sourced from Mercedes and finally, the R67 is a two-seater.
