Teslonda Is A 1970’s Honda Accord With Tesla Power That Can Outrun A Bugatti

What’s your favorite electric car? Is it one of the three Tesla models, the upcoming Roadster or the impressive Rimac C_Two?

Thing is that despite the massive R&D that went into the aforementioned vehicles, this old Honda Accord is way cooler. And that’s mainly because the guy who built it did everything in his garage, and it’s also faster than most modern supercars. Heck, you’d probably need to turn to hypercars to get something that’s equally fast.

But how fast is it?

A new video demo reveals a staggering acceleration time from 0 to 60mph (0-96km/h) of just 2.48 seconds. That’s about the same as a Bugatti Chiron, and unlike the Molsheim-made beast, turning this Honda Accord into a supercar slayer didn’t cost an arm and a leg.

The only thing needed was a Tesla electric motor and a Chevy Volt battery pack, combined with lots of man-hours and the technical know-how of a friend, who came up with the digital instrument cluster, made to resemble a 1980s arcade game.

It may appear ready, but the Teslonda is still a work-in-progress, and the owner will likely continue to constantly update it over the next few years, until the whole project will eventually be shelved. But until then, let’s take another look at it, shall we?

    It will be a very interesting future when old cars are given new life with universal battery packs and electric motors.

    • wait a minute

      I’m we’ll see alot more older cars embodied with modern EV running gear. There are already a few companies doing this.

    A little consideration for aerodynamics (i.e., lowering the raised front end) might be helpful, along with replacing the original independent front suspension.
