Completely insane, 0-186 MPH in just over 9 seconds? Imagine experiencing that. This thing is from a different planet.

These figures are insane. Imagine in 5 - 10 years time if there will be a car that is even quicker than this one. Hard to imagine, but possible.

And all as a result of electric traction.

I can't see cars getting much quicker now, they're really pushing the physics possibilities. Unless we use magnetic levitation like the high speed trains in Japan etc, friction will always be there to slow us down a bit. That and aerodynamics.

And aerodynamics becomes tricky at those speeds. Reduce drag too much, and lift could reduce traction, or pull the car into the air.

I was impressed with the Formula Ford I drove in the 70's. I can't imagine this at all. I don't think I want to experience it. I'll stick with at most 10mph per second, 8mph/sec is probably plenty. And then my fuel needle won't drop as if I was operating an F-18 too.

Yes. A reasonably fast bike was more than enough acceleration for me. Any more just gets you to your accident that much quicker.

Yes. I had a 1976 R100/7 and it was faster/quicker than I needed, but it was excellent for touring.
