Drive eO will debut their new PP02 race car at Pikes Peak 2014. The car is based on a Tesla Roadster but uses technology developed from their Pikes Peak 2013 PP01 race car. It features an upgraded 360 kW electric motor that produces 500 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. This is more than double the power found in the original Tesla Roadster 1.5 model.
