Artega Unveils “Scalo” Electric Sports Car

Amongst the many other cars revealed at the recent IAA motor show in Frankfurt, Germany, was the Artega “Scalo” electric sports car.

The innards of the new EV model are made up mostly of two Voltabox electric motors, together generating around 402 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque — though a short burst of extra power is available, allowing an increase up to 516 horsepower. Reportedly, the Scalo will a drive from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 96.5 km/h) in just 3.6 seconds.

The model will play home to a 37 kilowatt-hour (kWh) lithium-ion battery pack, allowing for a reported range of up to 402 kilometers. As one can see, the model certainly has a notable look to it. No doubt, eyes will be turned.

(Tip of the hat to “Buckeye2320” on the Tesla Motors Club forum.)
