The world’s first 100% zero-emissions GT series, the Electric GT Championship,  is excited to announce the use of Tesla’s brand-new, top-of-the-range model – the P100D – as its V2.0 racer

Hitting 60mph in 2.4 seconds from a standstill, the Tesla Model S P100D is the world’s fastest-accelerating production car – giving Ferrari LaFerrari performance levels from a family saloon.

Acceleration, handling and grip will improve even further when an additional 500kg are shed, and racing brakes, suspension and Pirelli slick tyres are fitted to the P100D.

The 85kWh battery pack has also been upgraded in the new model to 100kWh, improving its already impressive driving range.

The V2.0 design is complete and EGT will now work with official partners OMP and Pirelli to race-prepare the P100D, as they move us towards the Age of Light.

“The Electric GT V2.0 design is the fastest way towards the ‘Age of Light’,”  Electric GT Championship CEO, Mark Gemmell, said. “I am very excited to be using the Tesla Model S P100D as it is incredibly quick and innovative. This week we opened the subscription period for teams and the new car announcement is an exciting prospect for those who want to join us.”
