I've been on a resto-mod kick for the past few months, fantasizing about hopping-up a Volvo 122S, a vintage Mercedes, or maybe a Squareback. The combination of classic style and new tech is just too damn enticing, and on more than one occasion I've thought about going electric. Or I could just buy this.
Zelectric Motors has been perfecting the art of the electric Beetle for the past few years, and I ran into their latest completed project – a black-on-red '66 – at Crash d'Concours during this year's Pebble festivities. I was immediately in lust.
