World’s Fastest Electric Car

The current land speed record was set back in October 15, 1997 by Thrust SSC which broke the sound barrier at 763 mph. It was powered by two turbojet engines. Now fast-forward to 2016 and a car powered by the same device that enables your vacuum cleaner to suck up dirt aims to set a land speed record for electric vehicles. The all-electric Venturi Buckeye Bullet-3 is a collaboration between Venturi—a Monegasque electric car company—and the Ohio State University that plans to break 400mph (644km/h) on the Bonneville salt flats while simultaneously acting as a test bed for future electric vehicles and the young engineers who work on it.
