In the record run the Nio seems to be on full slicks though, which is a big advantage.

@Andres

Yeah, it probably does. I just thought it had some merit in here since there was a lot of discussion surrounding if it was technically possible to create a road 'hyper-car' that could be faster than an F1 car, and I think this car goes a long way in showing how such a [electric] car could be realized without the constraints that a normal ICE car has with piping, cooling etc.

I mean just look at that underbody and all those air channels. :shock:
Not for nothing, Rosberg's Championship is the only thing that lends credibility to Hamilton's recent success. Otherwise, he'd just be the guy who's had the best car. (Ask the average Vettel fan what that's like.) --- bhall II

If power-to-weight and downforce-to-weight ratios still mean anything, Valkyrie isn't going to have any issues. That electric thing is a pig... as electric cars tend to be.
