Who says that electric cars are boring? Artega from Germany has come up with an electric sports car that is capable of hitting 100 km/h (62 mph) from zero in just 4.3 seconds, and is more than able to surpass the 250 km/h (155 mph) top speed mark. Of course, this is still slower than the recently released Porsche Plug-in Hybrid 918 Spyder. Using a couple of electric motors on the rear axle that are capable of a total output of 280 kW (380 hp) which operates independently to drive each of the vehicle’s rear wheels, the electric motors are able to transmit their power linearly with no delay, letting the SE arrive at the 100 km/h mark half a second faster than its GT counterpart. You’ll need to carry a 300 km charging cable – we kid, it has a range of 300 km on paper, but standard driving conditions are able to see one hit 200 km. Out later this year, they will burn a $212,500 hole in your pocket. Ouch!
