Riga Motor Museum is showcasing a new exhibit - the electric powered super car made by Latvian engineer Andris Dambis and his team specially for the international Pikes Peak Hill Climb championship.
In 2016, the Latvian-built 1600 hp electric vehicle was piloted by the experienced New Zealand driver Rhys Millen, who completed the 20-kilometer long track with 156 corners in a record time of 8 minutes and 57 seconds. In the electric powered car class, this record has not yet been exceeded. Pikes Peak's track overall record of 8 minutes and 13 seconds belongs to the French racing pilot Sebastien Loeb. He set the record in 2013 with a Peugeot.
The approaching Easter holidays make a great opportunity to see this Latvian supercar, as Riga Motor Museum will be open every day as usual from 10.00 till 18.00. In addition, children visiting the museum will have the possibility to participate in Easter themed activities at the museum's exposition. The museum offers also additional services like museum cafe, free of charge parking, gift shop, children play area and outdoor playground.
