The project’s goal is to test the capabilities of electric vehicles and exceed 400 kph, the current record for a street-legal gas powered vehicle.
The car’s most notable feature is the fact that it has 8 wheels, each of which houses an 80 hp electric motor. Furthermore, the Eliica has a 0-100 km/h acceleration speed of 4 seconds - that’s better than the Tesla, a Corvette, and even a Porsche. It costs around $320,000.
