At the end of June, Volkswagen and French racing driver Romain Dumas did something many of us thought impossible. Using a highly specialized electric vehicle called the "I.D. R Pikes Peak," Dumas raced to the top of Pikes Peak in Colorado in under eight minutes, shattering the existing records for EVs by a full minute and the overall record (set by Peugeot and Sebastian Loeb in 2013) by a hefty 16 seconds.

Wow! I can't believe how that car rockets down the straigtaways!

Having a hard time with the sound though, or lack of it...maybe they could use some of their own technology to make it sound more appealing???

I was on the Salt Flats when the Buckeye Bullet set the world land speed record for electric vehicles at 321 mph.
