Over the past several months, Volkswagen heavily promoted the fully-electric Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak race car — and for good reason. It is not only is a highly-capable race car, but it also signals the future with Volkswagen’s move to all-electric vehicles.
The Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak race car more than backed up the hype, for it achieved a record-breaking run on the Pikes Pike International Hill Climb, with a time of 7:57.148 minutes. It beat the previous record for electric vehicles, as well as the all-time record by 16 seconds. Check out this breathtaking helicopter footage of the Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak’s record-breaking run.
