July 24, 2015 – A group of German engineering students that call themselves GreenTeam Uni Stuttgart have created a single-seater electric car that can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in an unbelievable 1.779 seconds. That’s 0.8 seconds quicker than a Porsche 918 Spyder and a new Guinness World Record.

The team released a video of their record-breaking run, with Priska Schmid piloting the all-wheel drive 100kW electric racer at the JadeWeserAirport located in the Northwestern part of Germany.
