Mercedes gull-wing goes electric

When electric cars first started generating buzz, I couldn’t help but wonder if they heralded the end of performance automobiles.

As it turns out, there have been some uber-impressive electric vehicles hitting the track as of late, especially from Tesla and Mercedes-Benz. Indeed, the latter auto manufacturer recently unveiled a new high-performance electric vehicle at the Paris Motorshow.

The car is an all-electric version of the sexy gull-wing SLS AMG, which Mercedes refers to as the SLS AMG Electric Drive. The car looks pretty sweet, save for the blue-chrome paint scheme which just doesn’t work for me.

The gasoline-powered version of the car is equipped with a massive 6.2-liter V8 engine for motivation producing 563 HP and 480 pound-foot of torque. In SLS AMG Electric Drive guise, the car has an electric motor at each wheel producing a combined 740 HP. Those electric motors produce 737 pound-feet of torque.
