All the way back in 1897, electric cars existed and found their first commercial use as taxis in Britain as well as the United States. Unfortunately, internal combustion engines (ICE) in the first decade of the 20th century took away the advantages that electric cars had due to their quicker refueling times, and cheaper production costs. However, if electric race cars existed in the 1940s, it would probably look something like Alex Baldini’s Helvezzia Tipo-6.

Even before the start of the 20th century, six electric cars held the land speed record, with the final one being a rocket-shaped La Jamais Contente, driven by Camille Jenatzy, which achieved 65.8 mph on April 29, 1899. No technical specifications were provided for the Helvezzia Tipo-6, but we imagine it being much faster than its predecessors. Aesthetically, it sports an open-wheel design, a large chrome front grille, a sporty set of tires, and a spare wheel located to the side.
