The fully-electric Formula E car took a walk on the wild side, lining-up against a cheetah in a head-to-head race to highlight the impact of climate change on a species under threat.

Both sleek and agile machines, on four legs and four wheels, sat side-by-side on a landing strip in a remote part of the Western Cape on the southern tip of Africa, to see which is quicker off the mark in a drag race.

The world’s fastest land animal and the Formula E car both reach speeds of 0-100km/h (60mph) in approximately three seconds. Who’ll come out on top between TECHEETAH driver Jean-Eric Vergne and a cheetah on home soil?
