The Touring designed Artega Scalo Superelletra is heading to the Geneva Expo 2017 and the car looks astonishingly good looking.
If it manages to deliver the performance expected of it, the new vehicle could go places and compete with the big manufacturers.
The story behind the brand Artega is pretty huge as the company continued to go from success to debacle now and then. The German sports car brand was purchased and resold by different companies until it has reached its current stage. Klaus Dieter Frers is the original founder of the brand who now owns the company and he has already revealed his plans to foray into the electric segment.
While they always make limited edition models, the cars are all of high performance and easily fall in the super car category. The latest model is inspired by the name of a horse and will deliver more than 1,000 horsepower. The car can seat up to three people at once and is expected to go into production in 2019. Just 50 units will be built which is no surprise considering the price and the performance offered by this super car.
Under the hood, as revealed by inside sources will be a four water cooled electric motors that will produce about 1,006 horsepower. They will produce 750kW to keep the car going at its top speed with a total torque of 1,620Nm. The weight of the car is pretty low because of the ample usage of carbon fiber reinforced polymer material with steel frames on the front and rear to add support to the base.
The Artega Scalo Superelletera is poised to set a new benchmark in the electric segment with not only in speed but also usability. If the battery is recharged for just four minutes, the car can go for 500 kilometers before it needs to be plugged in again. Within 17 minutes of recharging time, the battery will get recharged about 80% making it pretty slick for anyone planning to go on long drives. These numbers are pretty good for an electric model and if the same is implemented on all other affordable variants, EVs could become relevant to the average consumer.
The top of the super car is pegged at 186 miles per hour and can reach 62mph in just 2.7 seconds. Design house Touring has done a great job in making the car stylish and suave. All the latest and great technologies that you could think of is implemented in the dashboard of the car. Touring will work on the composite bodywork in Italy and the final production version will be built in Germany. The Artega Scalo Superelletra is expected to cost between £850,000 and £1.3m.
