Before Mercedes EQ, there was other Mercedes-Benz EVs. The 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive you see here is one of them. You may remember this electric green supercar was presented with a matching Cigarette Racing AMG Electric Drive Concept Boat at the 2013 Miami International Boat Show.
There were just 9 units made and god knows how many are still registered. But never mind how many because, you now have a chance to ride away a unit cos’ the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive is available for your taking – if you have a lot of Benjamins to drop.
The 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive is the familiar SLS AMG you may have come to know and love, but driven by four electric motors – one at each corner.
It has a rated power output of 740 HP and turns up 1,000 Nm (738 lb-ft) of torque. It was, at that time, the world’s fastest electrically-powered series production vehicle and the most powerful Mercedes-Benz ever built.
It is fast too, capable of rocketing from naught to 100 (0-62 mph) in just 3.9 seconds and tops out at 250 km/h (155 mph).
When fully charged, the car’s lithium-ion battery system affords a modest range of 250 kilometers (155 miles).
The specs is nothing something to shout about today, but what you will be getting is a piece of automobile history and a super-duper rare ride. But those are going to cost you.
Before we get to that… you may want to know the original price tag was €416,500 – a price which only select elite could afford. Now, its for the elite of the elite because, it has an asking price of €1,050,000, which works out to be around US$1.27 million as per today’s going rate.
