Bluebird Performance Engineering had announced last July that they would present on 28 September in England at Sustainable MotoExpo, both the DC50, an electric sports car, as well as the GTL, its own car for the Formula E championship of FIA.
However, the Sustainable MotoExpo postponed until April 2014, when the Bluebird will showcase its new electric sports car in the 4th month of the next year.
The DC50 will go into limited production of 50 units and it will be painted in blue, featuring glass hood and electric doors that open upwards. It will go on sale as a tribute to the 50th anniversary of speed record on land and water that had succeeded in 1964 by Donald Campbell, who had drove a Bluebird CN7 at 690 km/h in both land and 444.7 km/h on the water with his Bluebird K7.
The DC50 is equipped with an electric motor of 268 kW (365 bhp) which gives an autonomy of 322 km.The only thing that was announced in the press release of Bluebird was that the DC50 will have a corresponding acceleration to that of a Porsche.
