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.

      Race fans love the sound and smell of racing cars.... two things EVs will never produce.

      I know that the modern educational system is garbage but I would hope you can at least count to 3. Two electric motors and a 1000cc engine is 3 powerplants not two.

      Nice sporty car. The battery and the gasoline electrical generator are probably pluggued in serie instead of in parallel like the volt as this car is build for sporty reasons. With a sophisticated wiring system they can plug the gasoline generator in serie and parralel depending if they just want to recharge the battery for long range under normal speed or in serie when they want to maximize the speed. Im interrested to buy. I hope it will hit the market.

      It looks like what someone would draw in 1980 if you tried to describe a Zonda to them. Not. Great.
