This fan electric car is the fastest ever at Goodwood

HIt’s been for a little, for less than a second, but the stranger McMurtry Speirling It is already the fastest car in history in Goodwood. The small British electric bullet has managed in this year’s edition to lower the 39.9 of the Volkswagen ID.R until leaving the new world record in 39.08 seconds.

Faster than an F1 and VW’s electric beast

The McMurtry Speirlingin the hands of the former Formula 1 and IndyCar driver Max Chilton thus overthrows sports cars of such tradition as the German prototype, current record holder both in Pikes Peak (absolute) and in Nurburgring (among electric cars) and, to have a better reference, even faster than the Formula 1 with the best time (41.6 s) at Goodwood: the McLaren MP4/13 that 23 years ago will pilot Nick Heidfeld in the festival of speed British.

The McMurtry Speirling is a peculiar electric sports car with unconventional proportions (3.5 meters long, 1.1 meters high and just 1.7 meters wide)… and some very particular aerodynamic resources that allow you to display wild features. Hence the record stratospheric What did you get this Sunday?

A fan for radical aerodynamics

Definitely one of the key figures and more impressive than the McMurtry Speirling is the aerodynamic lift force that it is capable of generating. Nothing less than 2,000 vertical kilos (more than double its own weight, which is less than a ton)… standing still!! thanks to the use of an 80 CV fan that generates that suction on demand by its own movement.

This is a principle that has already been used (albeit very partially) in competition with optimal results. In 1978 the Brabham BT46B won the Formula 1 Swedish Grand Prix with a similar concept, which was immediately banned. Now, 45 years later, another fan car he wins a competition again, although in this case of less substance.

The Speirling is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just 1.5 seconds, another overwhelming fact. The enormous power of its electric motors and the grip generated by its aerodynamics allow it to move at an unusual speed for its small width and weight: more than 150 miles per hour (241 km/h). Their autonomy electric exceeds 300 miles, that is, almost 500 kilometers.

Will it have a road version?

McMurtry Automotive has a reservation period open since it intends to sell a enrollment version of this electric hypercar so special.
