The Evisol Thorr is a Prius with Ninja Boots

Since the Tesla Roadster is on the steep side and the Fisker Karma is strictly vaporware until we get to drive one, most electric sports cars are out of reach of mere mortals, but Evisol is looking to rectify that with its own version of the Lotus Super 7. Packing a Siemens-sourced electric motor and a set of lithium-polymer batteries, the Thorr has a continuous output of 91 hp, but can deliver a peak of 272 hp and 332 lb.-ft. of torque. In true Seven fashion, the Thorr is about as minimalist as it can get, but in addition to losing the luxuries of a modern automobile, the lack of a transmission, ABS, boosted brakes and anything resembling sound absorption material has it tipping the scales at 1,664 pounds. Theoretically, that should allow the Thorr to make a quiet sprint to 60 in a few ticks over three seconds. How quiet? Check the video after the jump to find out.via autobloggreen
