The Shanghai Auto Show has treated its audience to quite the experience overall and, as expected, there have been some cars which have really stood out.
Zedriv's electric GT3 is one of those cars, and the mini EV has done nothing short of dazzling onlookers with its remarkable paint job plus a whole lot more.
At first glance, this car resembles the neat mini Porsche 911 from Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto 5, with the two-door concept, the 911-style taillights, and the shape of the front and rear lighting units really giving off that Porsche feel. There's also the flared fenders and a powerful diffuser to go along at the back.
The Zedriv GT3 does seem like a compact 911 clone. It measures 13.11 feet in length, 5.4 feet in width and is 4.2 feet tall. The design looks to be a mix of the 911's shape and a few features from the Nissan 370Z; so while it's something drivers would likely want to get their hands on, it doesn't score that many points for originality.
The car's electric powertrain produces up to 131 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque. Admittedly, those numbers don't seem to be all that but Zedriv says the car weighs just 2,535 pounds, so that should be very helpful where speed is concerned.
The Chinese automakers also claim that their GT3 can hit 62 mph from zero in 7.6 seconds and can reach a top speed of 99 mph. It's powered by a 33.9kWH battery pack that allows it to be driven for an impressive 161-mile distance on a full charge.
The electric car market in China is expected to blow up in the coming years as manufacturers looking to get on par with American and European companies in the EV field.
This GT3 remains a project for Zedriv but it's certainly an intriguing concept which should do well in sales whenever it becomes available for purchase.
