Finnish Electric RaceAbout Blitz the Nürburgring [VIDEO]

During a recent Nürburgring expedition the Electric RaceAbout team set a new, greatly improved, lap time.

While testing the latest powertrain improvements and the new Nordschleife Aero-kit Micke Be rgman stopped the timing at 8:23.56. To put this in context the Audi R8 e-tron did it in 8:09.099 while the Mercedes SLS E-Cell set a time of 7:56.234

Due to the limited possibilities for only three complete laps this time there is still room for significant improvement.

According to Micke the new Nokian Hakka Black tyres, the torque vectoring control and Aero-kit combined with the lighter and more powerful battery take the E-RA to a completely new level of performance.

The almost unlimited new potential unleashed by the torque vectoring both improve the car's agility and stability. This was not previously possible with traditional powertrain technologies and together with the team we'll continue to explore the possibilities and improve the technology.
