Pikes Peak is one of the most intense hillclimbs in the world, with cars charging up a giant mountain while they peer over even more terrifying drops. So this is what it's like when you strap your face to the bumper of the 600-horsepower all-electric Mitsubishi MiEV Evolution III.

Greg Tracy ended up setting the pole with a time of 3:48.208, and beyond the sheer sense of extreme speed, it almost sounds like Tracy's piloting an alternate dimension Crown Vic cruiser, between the whine of the electric motor and the siren warning people that 450 kW of rage is coming towards them.

Pikes Peak is this weekend, and it's already nuts.
