An electric racing car handmade by a university student sets a new Guinness World Record for accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just 0.956 seconds.

One of the numbers that indicates the performance of a car is a number called 'zero acceleration' that measures the time it takes to reach 100 km/h from a complete stop. An electric racing car jointly developed by Academic Motorsport Club Zurich (AMZ) and Lucerne University of Applied Chemistry and Arts has set a world record for accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just 0.956 seconds.

The research team has been developing an electric racing car called ``mythen'' for one year starting in September 2022.

All of mythen's printed circuit boards, chassis, batteries, and other parts were developed by students.

Team staff will make careful adjustments to mythen.

A female driver gets on Mythen. According to the team, Mythen, which uses lightweight carbon and honeycomb aluminum, weighs approximately 140kg, and even with the driver on board it weighs only 180kg.

Mythen's steering wheel looks like this. The racing car uses a proprietary motor and powertrain that produces approximately 326 horsepower.

The driver receives a detailed explanation.

The preparations were completed and the flag was raised to signal the start.

Mythen accelerates at once the moment you step on the accelerator.

We arrived at the goal point in no time.

The time it takes to reach 100km/h from a standstill is just 0.956 seconds. This record significantly surpassed the previous record of

1.461 seconds held by the University of Stuttgart, and broke the Guinness World Record for electric racing cars. According to the research team, it takes only 12.3 meters for Mythen to reach 100 km/h from a standstill.
