Meet Delft University of Technology's student-built electric race car. Watch it lap the Formula Student UK endurance course at Silverstone earlier this month. Listen to it squeal, whine and chirp like R2-D2 having a tender moment with another droid.

The car weighs 320 pounds and has four motors, one driving each wheel, with a combined 178 horsepower. Even with just rear-wheel drive, it came second overall at this event. It also is one of the strangest sounding racecars we've ever heard, up there with the Toyota Hybrid Le Mans Prototype that sounds like a pod racer.
