Electric cars are slow, economical and boring. Right?

Wrong.

Like a speeding bullet, this 700km/h land speed car is about to shatter the perception surrounding EVs forever.

Powered a 2230kW electric motor, the car – called the Venturi VBB-3 – is scheduled to hit the infamous Bonneville salt flats in August where it will attempt to clock 700km/h.

If successful, the Venturi will smash its own land speed record of 495km/h, first clocked in 2010.

A joint venture between Ohio State University and boutique car marker Venturi, the VBB-3 will be piloted by daredevil test driver Roger Schroer.
