230mph Electric Car
"This radical eight-wheeled, 600kW rocket from Japan is proof that electric cars can be fast and fun.
Called Eliica, short for Electric Lithium-Ion battery Car, it boasts a neck-snapping 0-100kmh time of just four seconds and a 0-160kmh time of seven seconds, which means the Eliica accelerates faster than a Porsche 911 Turbo."
A movie detailing the car is also available online.
