    The folks at Ford are working on an electrified Mustang, but the Russians may beat them to it.



    A startup based outside of Moscow called Aviar Motors is now taking orders for a battery-powered muscle car that looks just like a 1967 ‘Stang.



    The company claims it will have 840 hp and all-wheel-drive, allowing it to accelerate to 60 mph in just 2.2 seconds as speakers mounted on the otherwise silent sports car replicate the sounds of a classic Shelby GT500.





    A top speed of 155 mph and a range of over 300 miles per charge of its 100-kilowatt-hour battery pack are promised, along with some level of self-driving capability that Aviar calls Autopilot, just like Tesla does. There’s also has an extendable rear spoiler and an adjustable air suspension to improve ride and handling.


    The two-seat interior features a more modern design with a huge touchscreen display that looks a lot like the one in a Tesla Model S, but tucked between two dashboard brows that mimic the authentic Mustang’s signature style.

    Historically, every car the Russians have produced has been an unreliable piece of junk.

    So it's hard to envision them turning out a modern daily driver, let alone a high tech electric muscle car. .... :cool:

    Well, there it is. That Putin puppet Trump is at it again. His first muscle car in the 70s was a Mustang. His nickname in business was the Birdman. Today, he is a well known parakeet for the Kremlin. We all know that his hair is modeled after the Royal Northern Flycatcher. It just so happens the Flycatcher's head is the same color as the Russian Stang. The car maker is named after a bird. Obviously, this is yet further proof of the insidious efforts of President Trump to ally himself with the Russians for profit at the expense of a fine American auto maker. What next? One of these Russian Mustangs will appear parked at the White House?! Oh the horror of all this evil.

    GO GET 'EM, Democrats! Another matter for Mueller to add to his list of 117 things Trump may be investigated for!
