World's fastest production car to gain electric twin

Impossible physics

On a standard 110 Volt 15 Amp circuit, in 10 minutes you can get 110 * 15 * 10 = 16500 Watt-Minutes. If the car is going 60 miles/hour, it will take 200 minutes to travel 200 miles, giving it 16500 / 200 = 82.5 watts of power to use (on average). That's 0.11 horsepower !!
