Cleantech group Quimera have released a new snippet of testing footage taken from inside their ground-breaking electric GT car, the AEGT001. Proving that electric race cars are anything but silent, the short video gives a powerful insight into what it’s like to be in the cockpit of arguably the most advanced race car on the planet.
The footage was taken at the Motorland Circuit at Aragón, Spain where former 24h of Barcelona winner Borja Veiga was putting the car through its paces. Although currently limited to 6500 rpm giving a top speed of 160mph you can still get a valuable insight into what the next generation of race cars will sound like. The AEGT is unique; it is currently the only serious electric race car running a conventional six speed ‘box, which you can see being heavily employed during the video.
I can’t wait to finally see this car in the flesh, which will hopefully happen at Autosport International on Thursday. Expect to see a full low-down in the next few days!
