Volkswagen unleashed the fully electric, 680-horsepower (507-kilowatt) ID R concept on Pikes Peak in 2018. And in just one run, the sleek concept shattered Peugeot's overall hill climb record by a momentous 17 seconds and was the first vehicle to complete the course in under eight minutes. VW recorded a record lap time of 7:57.148. It'll soon make a run at the Nurburgring, too.
We know Volkswagen probably won't offer the I.D. R to consumers. But we say, why not? A limited run, six-figure VW supercar couldn't hurt businesses. If anything, it might entice the few uber-wealthy customers to take a closer look at the ID vehicles actually happening.
