The world’s first Formula-E car: Spark-Renault SRT 01E

Watch former F1 driver Lucas di Grassi do donuts at CES 2014 in an electric formula race car. He’s driving the Spark-Renault SRT 01E. It can go 140mph and from 0 to 62mph in three seconds. From The Verge:

The Spark-Renault is the first and only Formula E car for now, but ten teams are onboard for the inaugural 2014 – 2015 season, and each will have their own cars. For the first season, each car will be the same, but the series is designed as an open competition, unlike Formula 1. That means manufacturers will be largely free to push the boundaries with new technologies. In the process they’ll hopefully invent tech that will make it to future street-legal electric cars. We hope it works — everyone knows we could use more efficient batteries. In the meantime, the first Formula E grand prix is set for this September in Beijing.
