If you thought electric cars always needed to be practical and designed for the sandal wearing environmentalists of the world and could never provide any real driving excitement. It might be time to rethink and take a look at the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-cell prototype concept super car.
Equipped with four electric engines, two on each axle this beauty is capable of producing 526hp and races from 0-60 in around 4 seconds.
Unfortunately the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-cell is still just a prototype at the moment but Mercedes is hinting it might be a viable road rocket near 2013.
