Russian startup Aviar Motors has announced plans of building first-generation Ford Mustang lookalikes with all-electric powertrains, making an enormous 840horsepower and over 700 pound-feet of torque.

The yet-to-be-built concept will purportedly use an aluminum chassis with carbon fiber bodywork, modeled after the ultra-popular 1967 fastback version of the pony car. However, the appearance is the only element that will be patterned after the Ford production model – you won’t pop the hood and find a carbureted gasoline engine, that’s for sure.

It’s called the R67 and Aviar describes it as “the first electric muscle car with incredible acceleration dynamics and a high level of comfort”. It enables some impressive performance, according to the company. Aviar Motors claims 507 km of range (315 miles), 840 hp250 km/h (155 mph) top speed, and a0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration in just 2.2 seconds.

 You get a Tesla-inspired screen on the center console with air vents placed on either side. The gauge cluster behind the steering wheel is basically another digital screen, and most of the interior is wrapped in two-tone leather.

The R67 comes with dual-zone climate control, 12-way power adjustable seats, a rearview camera, panoramic sunroof, and keyless entry. There are also six airbags and 11 speakers as well as others that can be mounted on the outside to make the R67 sound like a Shelby GT500 model.
