Varley evR450

A few years ago, if someone mentioned a “green vehicle” in the midst of a cool cars convo, the proper reaction would’ve been to scoff and threaten to kick the offending party in the neck. But times have changed and there’s now a plethora of wicked rides that run solely on electric power. Here’s one of them: the Varley evR450. Varley Electric Vehicles is based in Australia, so you know this speed demon can outrun any of the various terrifying animals that call that continent home. Though its top speed is only 124 mph, you’ll feel great about doing your part for the environment as you whip 0-60 in 3.8 seconds.  Varley expects the evR450 will have a range of 93 miles before you need to find shelter from hungry dingoes. Start saving up: the price tag will be somewhere around $200,000 when it goes on sale in early 2012.
