VW needs to sell the motors as crate engines so I can put them in my eGolf

0-60MPH in 2 seconds? Why so slow?

I heard the new Tesla roadster is supposed to do it in 1.9 and cost $200K

Impressive. The I.D. R confirms, among other things, the benefit full utilization of tire-ground contact patch potential. Noteworthy is the use of two electric motors, one per axle.

It only has 680HP but weighs 2500lbs
The main build purpose is track
It all depends on electric motor and what you want to establish.
Super capacitors will be the next thing for faster discharge

This is the proper way to establish the potential dominance of EVs. Not the econo-boxes which cruise the street and annoy you on your daily commute.

Convince people the performance is there, and perhaps you wouldn't see shirts like this:

Kudos to VW, for sure.

But the difference between a race car and a road legal car is night and day anyhow, so this proves absolutely nothing (except that an electric car can be genuinely fast...which we already knew).

Cool, but meh.

Or we can see it in a different light and give kudos to McLaren for making a wonderful road legal car that doesn’t get decimated by a no holds barred electric race car!

Lol, and this thing can probably pull easy 3-4 G cornering

With the fitted slicks it easily would I imagine and both with road tyres the McLaren would be closer possibly.

The whole large capacity battery production with it's high costs contradicts the "safe the world" mantra. Same argument can be made with high powered ICE vehicles. But the latter is not built on the premise of eco-crusades.

It just adds a huge hypocritical angle to performance EVs.

This just in, an F1 car is faster than a 720s. Who would've guessed?!
