Venturi Buckeye Bullet 3: Fastest electric vehicle in the world


I’m Peter Bruce
I’m Ross Johnstal I’m Noor Kassar
I’m Dylan Tenorowicz, and I helped design and build the world’s fastest electric vehicle. The Venturi Buckeye Bullet is an all-electric
land speed race car built and designed by students here at The Ohio State University. This vehicle has been six years in the making
and over the course of the summer, students put in countless hours gearing up for this year’s
race attempt. At the end of the summer, a team of students,
staff and our driver, Roger Schroer, made the trip out to the Bonneville Salt Flats. This 3,000hp vehicle is propelled by four motors and
eight battery packs comprised of 2,000 Li-ion cells. The batteries alone are capable of supplying
over 2.5mw of power. On September 19, after many sleepless nights
and hundreds of hours testing and tuning the vehicle, we were finally ready to make an
attempt at a new FIA world record. And we did it! After two runs, we had a new world record
with an average speed of 341 mph. Over 100 mph faster than our previous record
with this vehicle. Everybody went crazy, giving each other high
fives and hugs. It was just a really great experience and
I’m really proud to be part of this team.
