Yes, that headline is a mouthful and this is the Aviar R67.
The Mustang nameplate is a household name the world over and in the world of electric cars, so is Tesla.
What you see here is a Frankensteinian concept car from Russian startup, Aviar, which intends to bring this electric Tesla-Mustang R67 mash-up to market.
It’s based on the Tesla Model S but its design draws inspiration from the first-generation Ford Mustang Fastback from the mid-60s. It features that classic pony car look that made the Mustang so famous, with its long bonnet, swept-back sloping roofline, wide stance and distinctive tri-bar rear headlights.
However, you won’t find a burly V8 engine under the bonnet, instead, the R67 calls on 2 electric motors for propulsion in conjunction with a 100 kWh battery. The R67 is claimed to offer 507 km of electric range.
How much power will this electric R67 produce you ask? Well, Aviar reckons it will be good for 618 kW and will be able to sprint from zero to 100 kph in 2.2 seconds!
As for the interior, it looks futuristic and Tesla fans will recognise the large vertical 17-inch touchscreen and Aviar says that the R67 will feature a sunroof, dual-zone climate control, genuine leather upholstery and a 12-way adjustable driver’s seat with memory function. The R67 will be fitted with 5 airbags and a reversing camera. A custom audio system with 7 speakers is also part of the package as is Wi-Fi internet, navigation and satellite radio.
News of the Aviar R67 first surfaced in 2018 and like many things in Russia, it’s exact arrival date is unknown at this stage. Do you want to see this concept become a reality?
