Roborace Teaser Video is Kind of Terrifying

The new Roborace self-driving race car has been revealed along with a creepy teaser video full of foreboding music to tease the new motorsports league. 

Roborace will have 10 teams, each with a pair of identical autonomous race cars, with plans to begin running the races later this year. The car seen is above is currently just a concept, penned by designed Daniel Simon, known for his design of Hollywood movie cars including the light cycles from the movie Tron:Legacy.

“My goal was to create a vehicle that takes full advantage of the unusual opportunities of having no driver without ever compromising on beauty,” said Simon. “Racing engineers and aerodynamicists have worked with me from the beginning to strike that balance—the Roborace is as much about competition as it is entertainment.”

The cars will be built by a company called Kinetic and are said to be capable of speeds up to 190 mph.
