When people say a hypercar is basically like a racecar, just remember this is probably a minute and a half faster than any hypercar. And this isn't even the full limits of racecar technology...I'm sure they could easily throw a motor in with double the horsepower and go even faster.

Oh my fuck.

Thing was topped out barely 1/3 into the straight. People are saying his AVERAGE speed through the whole circuit was 145mph.

In Le Mans winning form, the twin turbo 2.0 V4 produced a measly 500 HP. With the hybrid system driving the front wheels to the tune of 400 HP through energy recovery from the exhaust and braking.

For the 919 EVO version that's going around shattering lap records across the world (including lap records by Formula 1 cars) the fuel restrictor has been removed so the same 2.0 twin turbo V4 now produces 720 HP and the same hybrid system now produces 440 HP. Weight has also been dropped 86 pounds to 1872 pounds.

I see this, I read the NHRA is considering an electric series, and the electric VW just destroyed Pike's Peak. The future for modding is going to change a lot in the near future.

Probably weighs twice that at 60mph due to downforce

That 100-200kph acceleration is insane.

They increased downforce 53% over the Le Mans version as well...

Would love to see what a modern F1 car could do with a driver with a death wish
