My concern about that range...
Fri Nov 17, 2017 1:56pm that it's probably achieved (as is the insane power) via more-or-less doubling up on the battery packs. That's likely to make for a heavy car. It can overcome that weight with a straight line. But despite the low CoG, it may struggle to match some of the serious track-oriented options at track days. Cars like the Viper ACR, Porsche 911 GT2RS, Radical RCX, Praga R1, etc. Mass is the enemy in the corners (and braking zones).

Still, I really like what I've seen in so far. As you say, electric torque just flattens combustion engines. And I love the looks...

          in your rear view mirror. :D For now there's emotional equating of sound and power, but that's all just waste energy anyway. Noise is just... Noise.
