Although the new generation of the Chevrolet Corvette has made significant headlines in recent months. Mainly due to the presence of a central engine for the first time. Its predecessor has just been news and is that the peculiar model we met in 2018 has only achieved a speed record.

We refer to the Genovation GXE. That is, a very special Corvette C7 that can boast of being completely ecological. Since under its hood no supercharged V8 is hidden, or anything like that, but an electric motor that generates a whopping 800 horses. Its creators were sure of its potential and wanted to explore its limits on a track located at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, United States.

The goal was to try to break the speed record for electric production vehicles. Established in 2016, something they have achieved in style because electronic sports have reached no less than 338 km / h (210 mph). This means that the Genovation GXE has become the fastest street electric car on the planet. The ones in charge of certifying this registration have been the guys from IMRA (International Mile Racing Association).

In the video, we offer you, we can see how this record has been achieved, although we will not hear the usual roar of the V8. The copy of the document not only boasted power but also had an ideal weight distribution, adaptive suspension, Brembo brakes, carbon fiber wheels, and even a JBL audio system with 10 speakers. Besides, it offers the possibility of equipping a seven-speed manual or an automatic eight-speed gearbox with cams behind the wheel.

Under normal driving, its creators affirm that the range of use of this special Corvette is more significant than 280 kilometers. The company's plans go through the creation of just 75 units, which will be delivered to their respective owners in the first months of 2020.
