Genovation’s GXE Electric Corvette Shatters Thunderhill World Record

Genovation’s GXE Electric Corvette
Shatters Thunderhill

Randy Pobst Gxe 1

Genovation has been building and refining the All Electric C7 Corvette for a few years now, setting records along the way.

The Genovation’s GXE boasts a pair of electric motors producing 800 hp (718 lb-ft of torque) mated to a seven-speed manual transmission, unlike most electric powered cars these days with a single-speed gearbox. And is Already the world’s fastest street-legal electric car at 211.8 mph.

As the world’s fastest street-legal electric car (for now), the GXE employs a pair of electric motors under the hood that route power to the rear wheels through the Corvette’s stock rear-mounted transaxle, though it has received an uprated differential.

So when going for another record on the Thunderhill race course in Northern California, who do you put behind the wheel? Randy Pobst of course! Day one was all about fine tuning the GXE, while day two was scheduled for setting a new record; which they did with a time of 1:21;16.

The car is not cheap at over $700,000, but with the EPA range of 175 miles (estimated), it is still a great milk run car.

Watch (and listen) to the video above to see just how potent a performance-enhanced electric Corvette can be.

Mike Thumbs up

“The 1973 super duty Trans Am brings back high school memories for me specifically. One of my best friends got one prior to graduation because he was such a brainiac. We cruised around in that car at Speeds that I cannot put into writing! It wasn’t long after his ownership that he decided to change the camshaft. He had a brand new car sitting in his garage with the Engine all torn down. Did it make the car go any faster? I didn’t know enough about it to make an opinion. I was just hoping he would put it back together quickly so we can go cruise around some more! So, what does Mike like about this car? The fond memories of being a teenager soon to graduate high school and trying to decide what to do with the rest of my life!  Well Uncle Sam decided it for me!  Thanks Sam, couldn’t have done it without you.”
