PPNMC Noao Electric Race Car

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.
