VW Beetle

Believe it or not, but an electric VW Beetle called the “Black Current” has set a new quarter mile record. Awesome!

With this latest project, which they’ve appropriately named ‘Black Current’, achieved a new record at an Alternative Energy Racing tournament in Santa Pod, where it posted a 9.51-second quarter mile time. The car also managed to cross the line at 217km/h and achieve 0-96km/h in just 1.6 seconds in the process. Olly said in a recent The Nation report,

“You can’t imagine how fast it is…nought to sixty in 1.6 seconds is pretty hard to explain. It felt absolutely awesome.”
