Pure electric motorsport bliss

This is insanely cool. Last year Toyota Motorsport GmbH, based in Cologne, Germany, brought out an electric race car. The car, the TMG EV P001, uses the chassis from a Radical track day car and a full newly developed electric race powertrain. TMG took it along to the Nürburgring where it set a blistering lap time of 7:47.794, the fastest electric vehicle ever to tackle the Green Hell - the record still stands. Now, they've brought out an upgrade, ready to tackle the Pikes Peak hill climb in the US. Check out the video after the break.
