My ride in Illuminati Motor Works Seven Atlanta Illinois Route 66

This is my first ride in Illuminati Motor Works Seven. While I saw some of the early build process. I hadn’t taken a ride in Seven since it was completed. Granted it isn’t really completely finished. The team is always tinkering to improve upon their original work.

My ride started in downtown Atlanta Illinois – one of the many small towns along the Mother Road Route 66. Some of these towns have survived and lived on serving tourist exploring the legendary highway. While others have long shutdown. This is a quick ride through a few Atlanta streets.

As you can hear – electric cars are not completely silent. Seven makes a bit more noise than some of the production EV’s I’ve ridden in. But none are silent – you hear motor whirr and some road noise depending on the car. Of course doors were open – when closed I’m sure noise is reduced.

If you keep a close eye you might just spot Route 66 Arcade Museum entrance.
