Datsun 1200 Sets World Record

Recommended Posts

Recap of the Invitational a week ago at Portland International Raceway. If you recall it was about inviting gasoline powered cars to race the electrics. I got my Datsun beat by two battery powered cars, but at least one of those was another Datsun :-)


Saturday a week ago - July 14, 2007 - a Datsun 1200 set a new world record for fastest street-legal electric car: 11.4 seconds @ 114 mph. See that race here:


In the left lane: a Zilla-powered Datsun 1200.

In the right line: our own Ggzilla's Nissan-powered Datsun 1200.
