A Lemon-Powered Supercar

Former NASA engineer Mark Rober was asked to charge a very powerful battery for an electric Volkswagen. He decided to make lemonade- a really serious lemon-powered battery, using 1232 lemons. After having as much fun with that many lemons as they could think of, he and William Osman got down to business. Lemons were not the only creative idea he had for charging the huge car battery. The Volkswagen supercar ended up winning the Pike's Peak Challenge, and set a world record, too! (via The Kid Should See This)

The video mentions a VW electric supercar in "an upcoming Pike's Peak race".

In case you are interested in the results: the car broke the speed record for the course:
