Volkswagens all-electric race car the ID. R has come a long way in a short space of time. The car was produced in just 8 months and ran the 2018 Pikes Peak run where it smashed the lap record by 16 seconds.

A few weeks after that it broke the lap record at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Since then the ID.R has continued to get stronger. In March of this year, the ID. R obtained the world record for the fastest lap around the Nürburgring-Nordschleife.

Not content with breaking the Goodwood Festival of Speed hill climb record in 2018, the ID. R was determined to improve on its previous time in front of the packed crowds. With the perfect conditions the ID. R set off on its run which you can see in the video below.

In just over two years, the ID. R has smashed through multiple records and overcome every challenge it has faced. The impressive achievement highlights that electric vehicles have a bright future ahead in motorsport. Personally, we can’t wait to see the ID. R take on its next challenge!

During the festival, the ID R. also served as a great ambassador for the upcoming Volkswagen ID range which was showcased to visitors at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The ID. 3 was shown off in its glorious colour wrap and was joined by the ID Buzz and ID. Vizzion Concepts.
