Dutch students break electric car acceleration record

(Relaxnews) – With a blistering 0-100 km/h (0-62mph) time of just 2.15 seconds, the ultra-light single-seater car is not only more than half a second faster than the existing record holder, it’s faster than any production car — including the Bugatti Veyron.

The car, called the DUT13, was built by a group of Delft University of Technology students and, thanks to a generous helping of carbon fibre in the construction process, the finished car, which looks like a Formula One racer that’s been put on too hot a rinse cycle in the washing machine, weighs in at just over 145kg (320lbs).
