Volkswagen ID R Pikes Peak

They provide 680 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque, figures that help the R hit 60 miles per hour from a stop in 2.25 seconds. The goal will be to beat the existing record of 8:57.118 minutes for electric cars at the Race to the Clouds.

Beginning with its exterior, the radically-designed I.D. By the way, that 0-100km is faster than Formula 1 and Formula E cars.

Volkswagen has revealed the 500kW electric-powered I.D R Pikes Peak prototype race auto that it will use in an attempt by its Motorsport department to lift the electric vehicle record at the 2018 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in June.

"Volkswagen's goal is to reach the pinnacle of electromobility with the I.D. family", said Frank Welsch, Volkswagen's executive in charge of development. "As such, Volkswagen's involvement on Pikes Peak not only sets the trend for our future in motorsport, but is also of great symbolic significance in the truest sense", said Volkswagen Member of the Board of Management with responsibility for Development, Dr. The electrically powered single-seater has been created to win the fearsome Pikes Peak event, known as the race to the clouds.

Shortly after, he was whisked away to hospital where he was given seven stitches. "I just woke up to a loud crunching sound". However, as luck would have it, it was just a dry bite and carried only enough venom to make him ill for a couple of days.

Up to now we only had an idea of how the vehicle might look from computerised images. This is then stored in the battery packs which provide additional energy for the I.D. R Pikes Peak-in Alès, France. The chassis is built around the safety monocoque from a Norma sports prototype that Dumas has used to win Pikes Peak for the past three years, with VW developing a closed-cockpit sports prototype-style design. By and large, the aesthetic previewed by previous renderings of the vehicle has been carried over but the ID R now looks race-ready, clad in its grey livery. "The cooperation within the group really helped us, particularly given the tight schedule".

The low slung prototype is fitted with lithium-ion batteries developed by Volkswagen's newly established battery plant in Braunschweig, Germany. R Pikes Peak motor lies not just in its extensive technology but also in showing that electric cars can be far from boring. R Pikes Peak is capable of getting more power out with a lighter frame. When braking, the electric motors act as generators and convert braking energy into electricity to be fed back into the battery. For this reason, the bulk of the testing is not done on the actual route, but at racetracks. The ID R Pikes Peak will run in the top Unlimited Division, which only stipulates that cars meet certain safety requirements.

The Pikes Peak event, which takes place on June 24, is regarded as one of the toughest hill climbs in the world. Volkswagen has taken up the challenge and made a decision to break the record for electric cars going up the famous mountain.
