This 8-wheeled electric car is out of this world!

(which stands for Electric Lithium-Ion Car) is the brainchild of Hiroshi Shimizu. The project’s goal is to test the capabilities of electric vehicles and exceed 250mph, the current record for a street-legal gas powered vehicle. The car’s most notable feature is the fact that it has 8 wheels, each of which houses an 80hp electric motor. Furthermore, the Eliica has a 0-100mk/h acceleration speed of 4 seconds – that’s better than the Tesla, a Corvette, and even a Porsche.
