Video: First Look At The Spark-Renault SRT_01E In Action!

4 years ago by Jay Cole 1

Not so long ago at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Formula E Spark-Renault SRT debuted.

Formula E

Spark-Renault SRT_01E

The car features a top speed of 160 mph and 0-100 km/h time (0-62 mph) at an estimated 2.8 seconds. Total weight of the car is about 800 kg, of which 1/4 is the battery pack weight.

And while we have seen the car make numerous promotional appearances, we have never seen it actually in motion.

Now our friends over at AVÉQ have run down some footage (albeit very short in length) of the Spark-Renault SRT_01E in action.

The video shows Brazilian Lucas di Grassi, the official test driver of the Formula-E car, having a little spin-out fun before taking off in the car yesterday in England.

    “Chris Harris took a siesta from the likes of the Ferrari F12berlinetta and Alfa Romeo 4C in the latest episode of Drive, and he went to something a little bit more intense and high-tech: an 850-horsepower, electric racecar from Drayson Racing.”

    Drayson Racing Is one of the 7 teams of 10 now singed up for the September, 2014 Fia Formula E Championship.
