Swiss automobile company, Green GT is developing the world's most powerful electric race car--the Twenty-4.
The Twenty-4 is being designed to compete in the 24 hour Le Mans race. With that in mind, Green GT has loaded the Twenty-4 with two 100 MW electric engines. These engines will provide the race car with 350-400 horsepower, giving the Twenty-4 a maximum speed of 171 miles per hour. The race car can go from 0-60 mpgh in just under four seconds. The Twenty-4's body is composed of fiber-glass and has a carbon-fibre chassis.
These specs are just the beginning, the engineers expect the Twenty-4 to be even faster, sleeker and more powerful in two to three years. Green GT hopes the Twenty-4 will be racing in the 2011 Le Mans race.
