Three Austrian brothers have reworked a limited-edition Porsche race car model driven by actor Steve McQueen in the 1971 film Le Mans to run on electricity.

Kreisel Electric GmbH plans to sell the EVEX 910e for 1 million euros ($1.1 million), according to an email on Thursday. The car has a range of 350 kilometers (218 miles) and accelerates from zero to 100 kilometers an hour in 2.5 seconds. The original model 910 race car that appeared in the film used gasoline.
