An electric car - powered by wind turbines - has broken the UK electric car landspeed record on the outskirts of York. The 'Nemesis' clocked over 151 miles an hour at Elvington airfield this morning.
The previous record was 137. The makers of the Nemesis claim it's the first British electric supercar - and hope it will 'smash the stereotype' that electric cars are slow and boring.
