A racing car driver has taken on a cheetah in an extraordinary drag stunt ahead of the Formula E season - and the car won by a whisker.

Techeetah driver Jean-Eric Vergne , 27, challenged the world’s fastest land mammal in his all-electric Formula E car - with both capable of reaching 60mph in as little as three seconds.

But in a tight race on a remote airstrip in Western Cape, South Africa, the electric car beat the animal by a matter of millimetres.

The film was released last night to raise awareness of the threat of climate change to animals such as cheetahs ahead of next week’s UN Environment Assembly.
