10 Of The Wildest Pikes Peak Cars Ever | Feature

0

This weekend sees the 102nd running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, a legendary mainstay of the world of motorsport that sees a bonkers array of vehicles get fully sent up a 12.4-mile, 156-turn road that goes… well, absolutely nowhere, except to the top of a 14,000-foot mountain in Colorado.

We always get excited about Pikes Peak, because the rules – or lack thereof – mean that competitors turn up in some properly ludicrous machinery, designed with the sole purpose of scrabbling its way up the mountain as quickly as possible. Quite often, it’s a big car manufacturer setting out with something to prove, and this year’s no different as both Ford and Hyundai send specialised electric racers up the gruelling course.
