You’ve read about it, now watch VW’s record-making Tianmen Mountain run from the seat of a helicopter.
In a first, the Volkswagen ID.R all-electric race car has established a new record for the stunning Chinese Tianmen Mountain Big Gate Road, a 99-turn route that had never before been used as a performance car benchmark.
With a time of 7 minutes, 38.585 seconds, Volkswagen ID.R driver Romain Dumas demonstrated the power and precision of the ID.R on one of the world’s most scenic and technically challenging roads.
The ID.R is driven by two electric motors with a total system performance of 500kW, riding on tailor-made Bridgestone Potenza tyres.
