Pictures of Formula E racing car released

  • Organizers of Formula E, the championship for electric racing cars, released official photographs of the car to be used on Wednesday.

    The first Formula race is to be held in 2014.

    The Spark-Renault SRT 01E is a single-seater with its wheels partly enclosed by bodywork.

    Organizers have said it can reach 0-62 mph in under three seconds.

    Timing firm TAG Heuer has been announced as the series sponsor.

    The race series will feature 10 teams with 20 drivers competing on special tracks in city centers.

    A preliminary list of cities was released earlier this year: Los Angeles and Miami in the U.S., Buenos Aires in Argentina, Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, London in the United Kingdom, Rome in Italy, Beijing in China and Putrajaya in Malaysia.
