Although electric vehicle do not pollute the environment, they have a number of drawbacks, one of which is speed. However, students from the Ohio State University decided to solve the issue and developed the Buckeye Bullet 2.

The high-speed lithium ion-powered vehicle has recently broken the land speed record for a battery-powered car.

The average speed reached by the Buckeye Bullet 2 was 291mph, with the test being carried out in the Utah Salt Flats.

It is worth mentioning that the supercar features a battery from A123 Systems, a company that provides its products to Chrysler cars and Eaton trucks.

The body of the vehicle was developed by EV manufacturer Venturi, a company with headquarters in Monaco that created the Fetish model.
