Dubbed the Lola-Drayson B12/69EV, the vehicle is able to generate 850-horsepower (640 kW) from an electric charge.

It also boasts acceleration from 0 to 60mph in just 3 seconds and from 0 to 100mph in 5.1 seconds, being able to reach a top speed of 200 mph.

It is worth mentioning that this car is the first in a series that Drayson Racing looks forward to bringing to the 2013 world championship for electric racing cars called FIA Formula E series.
