Article by Christian A., on September 25, 2013

Deliveries for the Bluebird DC50, a two-door, pure-electric coupé, will start next July, according to an Autocar report. Production is limited to 50 units in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Donald Campbell's land and water speed records. There are two versions for the DC50, one of which is a high-performance derivative that delivers about 360bhp. In addition, this version will use technology initially developed for Bluebird's Formula E GTL electric racer.

Also, a lower-powered version of the DC50 will be offered, and is believed to have a 200-mile range. When interviewed by Autocar, Bluebird Speed Records project director Martin Rees said that half of the planned run has been given to customers.

He expects that 60% will be collectors, 20% will be users and 20% will be for the high performance derivative. Rees said that the company is “excited” about offering 50 Bluebird vehicles but that there are no plans to enter the mass market. He said that this operation is “a very intimate, very direct opportunity to celebrate a great man.” He exclaimed that Bluebird is basically about “pushing technology boundaries."
