'nemesis' Electric Car Breaks Uk Land-Speed Record

Recommended Posts

saw this and thought it was rather interesting!

 

A battery-powered car has broken the UK land-speed record for electric vehicles at Elvington airfield near York.

 

The Nemesis, a heavily-modified Lotus Exige which was originally bought off eBay, clocked an average speed of 148mph (239km/h).

 

The car was designed and built by a team of British motorsport engineers in Norfolk, and driven by estate agent Nick Ponting, 21, from Gloucester.

 

John Maguire reports from York.

Saw that being discussed at 6am this morning on BBC news, instantly thought, recognise the shape of that car! ;)

Yeah, I saw that on the BBC news as well. They were going to show it live, but there was a delay with the safety crew so it missed the news time slot.

 

They said it would probably be on in the morning.
