Guinness World Records has officially confirmed that Dutch students from Delft University of Technology have sharpened the 0-100 km/h acceleration record for an electric car to a stunning 2,134 seconds.

The record attempt by DUT Racing, a team that participates in the Formula Student Electric championship, took place at Valkenburg Airfield on 20 September 2013. They used their own build four-wheel 101 kW / 135 hp electric race car and was driven by the 24-year old female student Marly Kuijpers, their lightest team member. The bright youngsters used sugar water to improve the level of grip to accelerate even faster.
