Nissan may not be occupying the coveted prototypes-only 'Garage 56' at Le Mans this year but that didn't stop them from unveiling their cutting-edge intentions for 2014.

The groundbreaking and not-so snappily titled ZEOD RC will be the world's fastest electric racing car when it competes in next year's Le Mans 24 Hour race, reaching speeds of nearly 190mph.
