As shown in this video and verified by the International Mile Racing Association, the GXE was able to hit 186.8 mph.
Could the Tesla Model S P90D–or the potentially upcoming P100D–beat that record if its top speed weren't limited? We're honestly a little surprised that Tesla hasn't tried.
But the GXE is no slouch in the performance department. Its motors produce a combined 700 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque, allowing it to also hit 60 mph in three seconds flat. Its 130-mile range on a single charge isn't too shabby either.
Perhaps the craziest thing about this electric Corvette–other than its $335,000 price tag–is the fact it still uses a manual transmission.
Electric or not, a 700-horsepower Corvette with a manual transmission sounds pretty awesome to us. The GXE might not make the same great Corvette sounds we love, but on the other hand, never having to pay for gas again might be worth it.
