    Post Watch the VW ID. R set a new Nurburgring record

    Earlier this week, Romain Dumas shattered the Nurburgring Nordschleife record for electric vehicles with the Volkswagen ID.R.His time (6:05.336) is almost six seconds faster than Stefan Bellof the long-time lap record holder could do in a Porsche 956 racer, and around 40 seconds faster than the existing electric record holder, the Nio EP9.The record didn't come easy, though. Power management was critical, with Dumas essentially coasting across the finish line to preserve the battery. The flying Frenchman only had enough charge for around 200m more left after his record-breaking run, according to Volkswagen.Apparently the company thinks it could've gone faster if the weather was a bit cooler, with an ambient air temp nudging 30 degrees outside the battery's most efficient window.To get a closer look at the record run, check out the video below.MORE: Volkswagen ID.
