A battery-powered boat broke a decade-old world record last week, speeding into history on a British lake.
the Jaguar Vector V20E was making it's record attempt at Coniston Water in Britain's Lake District. Donald Campbell, a British car and speedboat racer, was killed there in 1967 when his jet-powered boat, Bluebird, crashed and broke up while he tried to break the world water speed record.
The V20E was designed and built by Jaguar Vector in partnership with Jaguar Racing's technical partner Williams Advanced Engineering. It used technology developed in Formula E, an all-electric motorsport series.
Piloted by Jaguar Vector co-founder and technical director Peter Dredge, the V20E reached an average speed of 88.61 mph (142.60 kph.)
The V20E broke the previous electric benchmark of 76.8mph set in 2008.
