Yesterday!! Do you mean that the same Reva performs like this after 8 years. Amazing.

What was the 0-100 time on the drag? Given a chance, was it good enough to beat all the other cars at the event.

After reading the title, I thought - you indeed worked on some "wonder-transmission"
Some photos please
(At your leisure)

For some reason, I really am fond of low-calorie engines & simple cars.
Although, this is one is far from it.. lol

Yes it is the same Reva, 0-100 is at 4.9 and it did the quarter mile in 13.1 secs. It was good enough to win its class and there were a few quicker cars but in a different class.



the reva is at 1.57 in the vid

Mr. Jayaram Sir, I have been staring into your garage for many years now (especially at the beefed up yellow and black Reva). A very good friend of mine stays at Ranka Plaza behind your house. I have to say...what a stellar job. I applaud you for this achievement. Congratulations!!

I saw one such car last midnight in HSR. It was more like a go-cart - without any body- it was bare-bone chassis with bare essentials.

2 guys activas were escorting this car and I couldn't take pic as they didn't want to be noticed.

There was a team-bhp URL sticker at rear.
Once it hit the ORR near Agara Depo, the car picked up serious speed with the escorting activas chasing the car. The exhaust was not inspiring though.

A small update, the Reva has now improved the quarter mile time from 13.1 at the vroom drag to 11.7 in the Bangalore drag fest.
We are now getting into supercar territory !😁
P1 again at this drag too.

Well an update after almost EIGHT years . As promised long ago some photos of the finished car...
Worlds fastest REVA! 0 - 100 under 5 seconds!-img_0544.jpg

Worlds fastest REVA! 0 - 100 under 5 seconds!-img_0558.jpg

Worlds fastest REVA! 0 - 100 under 5 seconds!-img_1135.jpg

Worlds fastest REVA! 0 - 100 under 5 seconds!-img_1176.jpg

The Car ran a 11.77 Sec ET pass at the Team46 Dragfest and won its class . We hope to get faster at the next event taking care of a few traction issues off the line.

Below is the link to the 11.77 Sec Run. Please excuse the amateur video.

Unlikely, though it would be fun to have a few revas or nano's on the grid. And also it would be of interest that Mantra Racing and Jayem work together on some very interesting projects.
