SolidWorks World 2010: 100% electrical Hot Rod

Green. Fast. Hot. Antique?


Hot Rod '33 ford

Spot any different? (the engine motor compartment)

It maybe an antique, but it is the fastest green/environmental friendly antique you ever see on the road. It did zero to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds on the first try, with street tyres, in a parking lot! I did 0-60 mph in 13.8 seconds with my 5 years old car on the first try.

SolidWorks did it again! SolidWorks ROCK!!!



Drove in by Jeff Ray, CEO of Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corp and beside him is Bernard Charlès, president and CEO of Dassault Systèmes. Both of them enjoy the ride into the Arena,  the '33 Ford stunted the crowd and all were amazed by the latest creation of Factory Five Racing (FFR). 100% electric car, powered by a DC induction motor, produced 660 ft-pound of torque (o.O) with no transmission. This ride really spice up the event!~
