There aren’t many electric cars that can exceed 100 mph, but there’s an electric golf cart built by Plum Quick Motors which races down the quarter mile is 12.2 seconds at 118 mph, making it the fastest golf cart in the world.
This new world record is about 15 mph faster than the previous record which was also set by Plum Quick Motors last year. The company offers performance electric motors starting with the $225 “Bandit” all the way up to the $650 “Assasin.” These motors, with the right battery and supporting parts, can take a normal golf cart and turn it into a 40 mph racing machine, and there’s a whole group of people dedicated to taking their cars beyond the limit.
The new record run took place on October 31st, 2014 at the Darlington Dragway with driver Robby Steen behind the wheel. The record attempt was made in a Club Car golf cart modified with Plum Quick’s “Black Ops” performance motor and a lithium-ion battery pack.
