Land Cruiser conversion by Electric GT disguises electric motor as a drop-in “V8 engine”

The idea is that by creating a modular kit that can be altered to fit engine bays of just about any classic car by 3D scanning the bay and making a motor kit that mimics the size and shape of the original engine. End result: a 4×4 electric motor that can be dropped into the engine bay in exactly the same place as the original, and even looks to a certain extent like the original. This means that the conversion doesn’t have to replace other components, such as the original 4WD drivetrain and transmission.
