  • Look and listen to the Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak testing

    We finally get to see the I.D R Pikes Peak in action at Pikes Peak. As you know Volkswagen is going for the Pikes Peak hillclimb record with their electric beast. They will get it considering the electric drivetrain will not suffer from elevation like an internal combustion motor.


    It showed in qualifying where Volkswagen destroyed the field. They were 11.049 seconds ahead of the gasoline powered second place challenger by the 5.15 mile mark which is the distance for qualifying. The full hill climb is 12.4 miles.

    The distance between the I.D. R Pikes Peak and all other challengers will only grow along with the elevation.

    VW has a new record in the bag.
