Just a couple months after our excitement reached epic proportions following the announcement of the Bluebird DC50 sports car, it’s been confirmed its debut will be postponed.
The car was set to make its world debut at the Sustainable MotorExpo next weekend, but unfortunately, that event has been postponed until April 2014.
Bluebird is a company which is known for its cutting-edge technology and record-breaking traditions. Bluebird’s new DC50 will receive a limited production run of only 50 units to dignify the 50th anniversary of the land and water speed records broken by Donald Campbell back in 1964 with a land speed record of 429 mph in the Bluebird CN7 and a water speed record of 276.33 mph in the Bluebird K7. The Bluebird CN7 is now displayed publicly at the British National Motor Museum.
Whenever the car is revealed, it will feature an electric engine which can produce up to 360bhp. Although there have been no official 0-60 mph times released at this time, the DC50 is said to have the acceleration speed to match a Porsche.
The electric sports car will have a two-door coupe body style which will also features electrically operated scissor doors and will only be available in one color; Bluebird Blue. The car also has a range of up to 200 miles on a single charge.
