NIO EP9 electric supercar

Old school supercars beware, the silent AND autonomous NIO EP9 will come around you. The electric super car went around Circuit of the Americas circuit and set the fastest production car lap AND a fastest driverless lap. The driverless car went around COTA circuit in 2 minutes and 40.33 seconds, reaching a top speed straight of 160 mph. A professional driver drove it to set the production car lap record at COTA of 2 minutes and 11.30 seconds, with a top speed of 170 mph.
NIO reports the car has four high-performance inboard motors with four individual gearboxes, 1 MW of power, 1,342 hp. 0 to 124 mph in a 7.1 seconds and a top speed of 194 mph. It set a time of 7 min. 5.12 second lap, NIO can claim the title of the world’s fastest electric car at Nurgburgring! Nice looking too!

This Electric Concept Car Just Set COTA Lap Records, With and Without a Driver
