If there was ever any question that electric vehicles could be faster than gas-powered ones, let this video be a lesson to you. Ride along as the NIO EP9, a 1342 hp electric hypercar laps the Nürburgring in 6:45:90 – the fastest time ever recorded in a production car.
This sexy open top beast is even better than the coupe, somehow dropping over 175 lb, and rocking a 764 hp Mercedes-AMG V12 engine. We think they should only make the carbon fiber and titanium supercar in this epic blue color scheme. Want one? All 99 of the $2.4m cars are already sold.
The droptop version of Audi’s powerful R8 supercar lets you truly enjoy the wondrous exhaust note of this 540hp V10 beast. It can still go from 0-to-62 in 3.6s, tops out at 198mph, and offers greatly improved rigidity, road and wind noise over the previous generation.
Joe Harmon took a page from the early days of the automotive industry, but in a modern sportscar. The Splinter’s frame, body, and interior are made entirely from wood. Despite that, it can hit speeds over 200 mph, thanks to its 700 hp Chevy LS 7 engine. More on Flickr.
