SPV Racing takes delivery of first Electric GT race car

Electric GT Holdings Inc. and SPV Racing unveiled the race-ready version of the EPCS V2.3 Tesla P100DL in Barcelona late last week ahead of the first season of its headline racing category, the Electric Production Car Series (EPCS).

The race-ready version of the EPCS V2.3 Tesla P100DL all-electric road car was the first vehicle to be delivered to a team before the series debut in November.

Finished in SPV Racing’s testing livery, the EPCS car completed a shakedown in the morning at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, with SPV Racing development drivers Emma Kimiläinen and Alvaro Fontes behind the wheel.

In the inaugural season, all EPCS drivers in the series will compete in an identical specification race-prepared EPCS V2.3 Tesla P100DL. With 778 bhp (585 kW) and 995 Nm torque, the car will be capable of achieving 0-100 kph in 2.1s and will be capable of speeds up to 250kph (155mph).

Mark Gemmell, CEO of Electric GT Holdings also announced that the final round of the EPCS will take place at Vallelunga, Italy on October 27-28 2019 following races in Spain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, the UK and Portugal as host countries for the 10-race first season.

“This is a very significant day for the championship as we deliver the first race-ready EPCS car to SPV Racing,” Gemmell said. “Years of planning and hard work have gone into delivering this championship, and I’m proud to be presenting a real, thoroughbred, race-ready car that will challenge all comers and thrill fans around the world. This is exactly the caliber of race car that will allow us to showcase and to fully engage the potential of the electric future.”
