Three Austrian brothers, working out of their garage, have transformed a Porsche 910 into a limited edition, souped up electric car. It's the same racecar immortalized by the "King of Cool" himself Steve McQueen, in the 1971 film "Le Mans."

Kreisel Electric partnered with German classic-car manufacturer EVEX Fahrzeugbau to recreate the iconic hot rod, of which only 35 original car frames were ever made.

The company says its EVEX 910e can reach a top speed of over 300 kph (186 mph) and accelerate from 0-100 kph in a mere 2.5 seconds. It has more than double the power of the original Porsche, and, also unlike its predecessor, this one is road legal.

It costs a cool €1 million ($1.1 million), but even if that were no deterrent, the company will only produce a handful of them.

This is not Kreisel's first foray into Porsche transformations: last year it electrified a Porsche Panamera, souping it up to match, and in some areas beat, the Tesla S.
