JUN 14 2014 BY STAFF 4

For the Nissan ZEOD RC racer, the appearance at the 24 Hours of LeMans was filled with positives. Most notably, the ZEOD RC became the first vehicle to ever complete an entire lap at LeMans under only electric power.

Sadly, there was a negative experience at LeMans too. The ZEOD RC suffered from gearbox failure, forcing it to retire from the race after only 24 minutes.

The interior looks like a space ship from a 60’s tv-serie or so 😛

It’s so sad that it had to retire from the 24h race after only 5 laps due to a gear box failure.

24 hour race, retired after 24 minutes. Coincidence?

Gearbox failure? How embarrassing.
