We think formula cars are really cool, and we also happen to think some electric cars, like the Tesla Model S and the Nissan Bladeglider concept, are really cool. Unfortunately, there seems to be a problem with the intersection of the two.
This is a video of the first test of the Spark-Renault SRT_01E all electric race car for the inaugural season of Formula E. While it looks fantastic, and seems to be really fast, it sounds horrible. It sounds like a three-ton mosquito. It sounds like the world's most powerful dentist's drill. It sounds like the most unhappy whining three-week-old kitten in the world.
As cool as FE could be, we can help but think that this sound is going to hold the sport back.
