Meet the Albula

19Jun07

It’s black, small and fast. Meet the Swiss built “albula” race-car.

One day in September 2006 some students from the ETH Zurich university decided to build a racecar to participate in the Formula Student race on the German Hockenheimring.

Some months later the idea of a race-car has become a leightweight (240kg) and well powered (82ps) über-go-kart. Those numbers have to be read carefully. The albula is able to sprint from 0km-100km in less than four seconds and has a top speed above the 200km/h mark.
