A Radical race car powered by a Toyota all-electric powertrain just broke the Nürburgring electric-car lap record of 59 hours (kidding, 9 minutes 1.338 secs), lapping the Nordschleife in 7 minutes 47.794 seconds. That's about the same as the BMW M3 GTS.
The electric kit — dubbed TMG EV P001 — is the product of Toyota Motorsport GmbH (TMG). The powertrain comprises two electric motors, providing 590 lb-ft of torque, which propel the car to a top speed of nearly 162 mph. Driver Jochen Krumbach set the time, breaking the previous EV record set earlier this year by the Peugeot EX1 concept.
