All Electric 1968 Mustang Breaks Records
Meet the Zombie 22 This is a Zombie attack of a different kind – See how this classic 1968 Ford Mustang was reborn with an electric motor and taken to the Texas Mile with dreams of breaking world records.
Some might think it a sacrilege to swap internal combustion from electric power in an iconic car like a 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback. But that's conventional thinking—and Mitch Medford and the team at Bloodshed Motors don't do conventional.
Medford has nursed an addiction to speed his entire life, and wanted to make sure his labor of love would devour records as well as rubber. Given his home base is in the Lone star State, the Texas Mile was a natural choice for him and his electrified band of gearheads to test their mettle.
This video from The Verge tells the story of their attempt to break the electric car record at the famed strip, and packs as much energy as the car's formidable batteries.
The verge is hands down one of the best at making these featured videos, there is always some special element they add that makes it so engaging, and the stories are unique
We don't want to ruin what's truly a compelling video, so watch to see how the Zombie 222 fares on the sunbaked Texas tarmac.
