Students from the Delft University of Technology, Netherlands create race car, the DUT 13 who break acceleration record. With its Weight at just 320 pounds, the DUT 13 is an incredibly lightweight racer. A system of small electric motors was
used to set the new record, each of which only generates 33 horsepower. Working together, however, the little buggers were
capable of putting out a grand total of 135 horsepower, or to put it more dramatically: nearly one horsepower per 2.2 pounds of the DUT 13’s weight. That power to weight ratio was enough to blow past the acceleration record, reaching 62.14 miles per hour in just 2.15 seconds.
