Low-Mile Lectric Leopard Sells For Only $3750S

How will you one-up the Joneses when they roll up all green and proud in their new plug-in Prius? You could do like eBay user armie253 did, scoring an electric Renault Le Car with only 221 miles on the clock for only $3750. Sure, it only goes 55 MPH and the range is on the limited side, but it's an electric Le Car! The Lectric Leopard was a late-70s product of the now-defunct U.S. Electricar Corporation; what we want to know is why the intensely citrus-flavored Le Car, rather than something like a Civic? But forget all that- the real question here is: how quick would this car be if upgraded from the current 48-volt setup to, say, 240 volts? [eBay]
