Electric cars don’t make much noise right? Well turn up your volume and listen to this high-voltage run by the Volkswagen I.D. R Pike’s Peak. Not only did it shatter the record for climbing the mountain, it made the world rethink their notions of an electric race car. The audio was recorded onboard so that the helicopter’s noise wouldn’t interfere. Listen closely and you will hear the tires trying to cope with the intense torque of this machine.
You won’t hear any downshifts, because the differential is geared perfectly for the average length of the straight sections. And watching this car come out of every corner like an ACME rocket is simply stunning. Listen to the future because its coming sooner than you think!
