You can copy-and-paste! Good job!You mean a hybrid with 440HP electric motor?
"Its turbocharged V4 combustion engine has been cranked to produce 720 hp, while an electric motor at the front axle makes 440 hp. With Bernhard on board, the 919 Evo weighs just 1957 lbs, and it makes far more downforce than the version of this car that competed in the World Endurance Championship (WEC) last year. It even makes more downforce than a modern F1 car. WEC regulations prevent the use of active aerodynamics, too, but the 919 Evo has a drag-reduction system, which allow it to hit nearly 230 mph on the final straight on the 'Ring, while still making loads of downforce everywhere else."
You were the one making a big deal about the lap-time of an electric-only vehicle. My point was how much slower it was than a car that also had an ICE.
If you want to compare the VAG's time with the time of a purely ICE car, you should probably reflect on the fact that thirty-six years ago, on tyres that by modern standards wouldn't be good enough for a lawnmower, with aerodynamics that by modern standards wouldn't be good enough for a saloon car, with a six-speed manual gearbox and iron disc brakes, a Porsche set a time that was only six seconds slower than what your state-of-the-art EV racing car did today.
And by the way, in 1983 the circuit was more difficult than it is today, and the 956's time was for the full circuit, whereas today VW's time excluded the piece of road in front of the Industry Pool gates, meaning that the effective difference between the VW's time and the 956's time of 1983 is only three seconds - even before one accounts for the current circuit's being easier.
