World's Fastest Electric Car - The Electric Blue by BYU

After 7 years, BYU engineering students have built an electric car that can go 175 mph. The car, called Electric Blue, raced down the Bonneville Salt Flats averaging 155.8 mph. During the second run the Electric Blue hit 175mph. Students custom built the body out of carbon fiber after intensive modeling in a virtual wind tunnel. Fueled by a trunk full of lithium iron phosphate batteries, this sucker officially broke the world land speed record for electric cars under 1,100 pounds.

The milestone marks the end of a seven-year quest of more than 130 students, led by Perry Carter, who just retired as an associate professor. “This is a wonderful closure to 31 years of teaching at BYU and many projects,” Carter said after the record was certified. “But this is the one that takes the cake. I’m done.”
