The Nurburgring has certainly been making a lot of headlines recently. One of the more recent ones is a new record that has been set by Mercedes. They have managed a lap time of just under 8 minutes. It was done in a SLS AMG Coupe. The really interesting thing about all this is that the Coupe is electric. Get the full story at the Age.

Henry Ford and the Internal Combustion engine defeated the electric car, because it had more viable technology at the time. More power could be wrung from controlled combustion. That technology was more mature and fully exploitable for years to come... but electric vehicles have the same potential to defeat internal combustion cars. All it takes is for that technology to mature and become fully exploitable. As of yet, EV technology has NOT matured... but if that technology - by which I mostly mean battery technology - is fully realized... the fastest performance cars in the world will be ELECTRIC.

bermankahns, editing comments would be nice, but in the mean time just remember to read what you write before submitting. Aside from that we know what you meant, it's all good.
