In the past one of the previous versions of the car Grimsel also briefly held the world speed record of dispersal to hundred kilometres per hour — then he was 1,785 seconds. However, less than a year ago, another group of students who are enrolled in at the University of Stuttgart, managed to break this record, and improved it by only 0.006 seconds. Returning to his championship, Grimsel managed much more confident to surpass the result of “competitors”, showing the result only slightly in excess of fifteen seconds.

Through the use of materialov of carbon fiber in the production of body weight Grimsel is only about 168 pounds. The wheels of the machine spin motors with a capacity of 200 horsepower, reaching a torque of 1700 Newton-metres. The record was set on the runway of the airbase dübendorf, near Zurich.

The fastest of the currently available electric cars, released into production, acceleration to 100 kilometers per hour requires more than two seconds.
