This electric monster is the latest motorsport project of Volkswagen, its official title ‘the I.D.R Pikes Peak’ – wouldn’t like to say that after a few beers!

The all-electric prototype racing car will compete in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on 24th June in Colorado, USA.

According to electric-vehiclenews.com ‘The four-wheel-drive racing car points to the sporting potential of the I.D. family of all-electric vehicles and is also the first step towards a closer relationship between Volkswagen R and Volkswagen Motorsport’.

Volkswagen plan to offer more than 20 fully-electric cars by 2025, with the manufacture of the first production model of the I.D. family scheduled to start at the end of 2019 in Zwickau, Germany.

For just as much fun, but not so far to go, why not head-on-over to East Anglian based English Electric Motor Co, the Zero & SuperSoco experts.
