(VIDEO) Electric sportscar: ERA 2013 testing on the Nurburgring - Porsche 997 GT3 RS make way!
Already known for a lap record on the Nurburgring or max speed on snow (252kph), the ERA prototype from Helsinki’s University of Applied Sciences went to the Nurb’ for some testing this week!
It will be hard to reach the current record of the Mercedes SLS AMG Electric Drive - however it 's fun to see it evolve over the years and leave far behind some sports cars whose reputation is second to none - like a Porsche 997 GT3 RS , which is overtaken in the first few seconds
During this lap of October 3rd, 2013, the ERA set a time (unofficial) of 8 : 23.56 improving the previous record by more than a minute ! 9: 36.01 in 2011
Here are the current records for electric cars
