    Wild Electric Powered '33 Ford Hot Rod @ SEMA

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Mike North of AMP=D says their Factory Five hot rod is powered by an electric bus engine and can go from 0-60 mph in three seconds. It has a top speed of 120 mph and can go 100 miles on a charge.
    - davidw, CNN iReport producer

    Straight off the SEMA show floor in Las Vegas ... The AMP=D '33 Ford isn't your average Hot Rod ... it's a screaming fast full electric beauty based on a Factory Five roller and packed full of cutting-edge A123 Lithium batteries with a UQM electric motor that puts out a whopping 660 foot pounds of torque.
