Nice video here showing the record run for the fastest production electric car, taken at Nuerburgring. Enjoy!
Driven by Markus Wankelhock, the car completed the course in just 8:09.099 minutes. This means the model was slower than the Toyota EV P001, but still fast enough to beat any other production electric vehicle.
As we have previously reported, the R8 e-tron has two electric motors that produce 313 PS (230 kW / 308 hp) and 820 Nm (605 lb-ft) of torque.
