Blink and you will literally miss it.

With an astonishing time of 1.779 seconds, students from the University of Stuttgart have set a new 0-62 mph world record. Using a 136-hp all-wheel-drive fully electric vehicle, the previous record was beaten by 0.006 seconds. Designed for Formula Student competitions, the 160-kg machine utilizes four electric motors and a 6.62-kWh battery for a power-to-weight ratio of 1.6 kg/kW.

To put that into perspective, the Veyron Super Sport is 2.08 kg/kW. The record is set to be confirmed by Guinness.
