The Nemesis takes UK EV Land Speed Record

Postby nommo » Thu Sep 27, 2012 9:40 am

A battery-powered car has broken the UK land-speed record for electric vehicles at Elvington airfield near York.

The Nemesis, a heavily-modified Lotus Exige which was originally bought off eBay, clocked an average speed of 148mph (239km/h).

The car was designed and built by a team of British motorsport engineers in Norfolk, and driven by estate agent Nick Ponting, 21, from Gloucester.

John Maguire reports from York.
