Bluebird will unveil two brand new electric vehicles at September’s Sustainable MotoExpo in England.
The Bluebird DC50 electric sports car and Bluebird GTL Formula E racer, will be revealed at the event by Don Wales, the grandson of Bluebird founder Sir Malcolm Campbell and nephew of multiple record holder Donald Campbell.
Limited to 50 cars, the two-door Bluebird DC50 is said to have up to 265kW with acceleration “to match a Porsche”.
Built to commemorate the upcoming 50th anniversary of Donald Campbell’s 1964 land and water speed records, the Bluebird DC50 features electrically operated scissor doors and a range of up to 200 miles (depending on specification).
The UK-based company says the DC50 will only be available in one body colour, Bluebird blue.
Designed to tackle next year’s FIA Formula E racing series, and seen as a Batmobile-style concept last year, the Bluebird GTL will join an anticipated grid of 10 teams and 20 drivers all driving race cars powered by Renault-supplied electric powerplants.
The two-day Sustainable MotoExpo kicks off on September 28 at the Beaulieu National Motor Museum in England.
