Electrifying a wide audience:  Volkswagen ID. R crowned “Race Car of the Year” twice
  • Auto Bild Motorsport honours electric prototype as “technological milestone”
  • BBC Top Gear magazine praises the ID. R as “template for success at Pikes Peak”

Breath-taking all-time record at the legendary hill climb on Pikes Peak with a pioneering, fully-electric drivetrain and a spectacular look – the Volkswagen ID. R Pikes Peak has already justified the use of many superlatives. The 500-kW (680-PS) prototype sports car has now been crowned “Race Car of the Year” twice – by specialist German magazine Auto Bild Motorsport and by British car magazine BBC Top Gear. This recognition from two renowned and high-circulation magazines follows a year of success on the track.
