Electric VW Shatters All-time Pike’s Peak Record https://t.co/4dYpqFXcWT

None of that should take away from their achievement this past weekend, however. “This is a fantastic day for Volkswagen and one, of which we are very proud,” said Sven Smeets, Volkswagen Motorsport Director. “The I.D. R Pikes Peak is the most innovative and complex car ever developed by Volkswagen Motorsport. Every employee involved in the Pikes Peak project has constantly had to push their boundaries and show extreme commitment and dedication. Without this, it would not have been possible to repeatedly overcome new challenges and come up with new solutions. It should actually be impossible to achieve all that and especially the all-time record in such a short time, but our team pulled it off thanks to their passion and commitment. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard on the project and showed such fantastic team spirit.”
