Can GreenGT's all-electric roadster win one of the world's oldest races?

Swiss-based startup GreenGT has a car in the works called the Twenty-4 it hopes could compete in the demanding France's 24 hour Le Mans race in 2011. That's a rather lofty goal in itself, but it gets even crazier — GreenGT's car is an all-electric vehicle, powered by two 100-kw electric motors. It's got some beefy stats, for sure — zero to 60 in four seconds and 350 to 400 horsepower to boast about — though so did the Tesla, and the jury's still out on that.

The Twenty-4 was designed by five students from the CCi du Valenciennois in France. Even if it doesn't win, it'll never lose when it comes to looks. Check out more of the Twenty-4 in the gallery down below.
