1899: First 100km/h vehicle

La Jamais Contente (English: The Never Satisfied) was the first vehicle to go over 100 kilometres per hour (62 mph). It was an electric vehicle with a light alloy torpedo shaped bodywork and with Fulmen batteries. The high position of the driver and the exposed chassis underneath spoiled much of the aerodynamics.  The light alloy, called partinium, is an alloy of aluminum, tungsten and magnesium.”
