It reportedly took Pole Performance Nevers Magny-Cours just six months to develop this electric race car before it set an official record on the Grand Prix track at the Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours in France.

Known as the NOAO, which is supposedly pronounced "Know How," this car boasts twin electric motors capable of pushing out 227 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. There is also a 1,000cc three-cylinder range extender hidden inside to keep its three lithium ion battery packs charged up.

All in, this race-ready machine weighs in at just 2,182 pounds, which isn't particularly heavy considering its two powerplants, three battery packs and all their associated hardware. Check out our live image gallery above and then scroll below to watch a video showing the NOAO recording its record-setting run.
