The torque of an electric motor can only be a very good but unreachable dream for the internal combustion engine. Nothing with spark plugs will ever be able to combat the instant power that an electric motor can give you. Because of this, it’s not a surprise that more and more people are starting to swap out their combustion engines for a set of batteries.
That’s exactly what this guy did after ripping the V8 out of his underwhelming Audi S5.
With the car not being quite polished yet with the batteries sat in the boot and stored on the back seats, it has plenty of potential. And due to the Audi’s gearing, it has enough torque to “pull a house down”. That surely can’t be a bad thing? Even if it is a bit rough around the edges.
