Really nice video about the team & car
The students who created world’s fastest accelerating race car
30 students of ETH Zurich, the Academic Motorsports Club Zurich (AMZ) have created the fastest accelerating electric car that put to the test across the runway at Dübendorf Air Base in Switzerland.
Video has been released that demonstrates the performance of this electric car, nicknamed ‘grimsel’. It can accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 1.513 seconds, thus breaking Guinness world record for fastest accelerating electric vehicles.
The speed of ‘grimsel’ is half a second faster than world’s fastest production cars (electric) which includes Tesla. It is also faster by two-tenths of a second than the previous record holder. It even beats the Zombie 222 electric Mustang by a reasonable margin while the fastest production cars are also no match for the ‘grimsel’ – Porsche 918 Spyder (2.2 sec), LaFerrari (2.4 sec), Bugatti Veyron (2.5 sec).
