It's official. Last week the spanish automaker Mercedes-Benz has confirmed its purpose to build an electric version of the SLS AMG Supercar.

The AWD car transfers to separate the six axles and electric motors at each wheel with a combined 392 kilowatts of power packs, the 649 lb-ft of torque, the car is a pin-drop 526 hp.

The Tesla is, of course. it is hot and electric. But the Gullwing is a classic, it is iconic. For me, this definition of the fortress of electric vehicles are required on American culture.

This will be the push-automatic zero-emission of 0 to 62 km / h in 4 seconds! This is when the engines walking. Are you still Sabbe? i am.

Electronic controllers will assure dynamically optimized power transmission by means of torque vectoring. That means the wheel with the most traction gets the most juice.

The motors will be fueled by a 400-volt liquid cooled, high-voltage lithium-ion battery pack delivering 40 Ah of current. The packs will run down the center of the chassis. They can be charged via an electrical outlet and also through regenerative braking.

Since an electric version of the car was considered during its design, no modifications will be needed to the car’s lightweight aluminum frame. In fact, the electrical version is expected to perform on par with the petro-based SLS. Well, except it will be quieter than its V-8 sibling.

“With the SLS AMG with electric drive, we wanted to redefine the super sports car. For us, it is not just about responsibility. We attach just as much importance to excitement and classic AMG performance,” says Volker Mornhinweg, Chief Executive Officer of Mercedes.

There was no mention of where Mercedes will be picking up these fancy EV parts but I am sure parent corporation Daimler will have some say in it. Daimler owns a big chunk of Tesla Motors. Also undisclosed is the vehicles’ range on a single charge.
