The VW ID.R is an example of what happens when you give the Germans a fast track, a pencil, and take away all the rules. It’s a racing car bound by no regulations, and because of that, it is the physical embodiment of pure unbound performance. 0-60mph takes 2 seconds. 0-125mph takes 5 seconds. This car is a maniac.
And who better to drive it? Well it’s not going to be Richard Hammond, is it? Of course, it’s Top Gear’s Chris Harris. He takes the all-electric race car for a spin. Anyone else completely taken aback as to how well the McLaren 720S held up against it in the drag race? That thing itself is a monster.
