Another chapter in the chequered history of German brand Artego kicked-off at the Geneva Motor Show with the unveiling of the Scalo Superelletra electric sports car.

The name blends the Italian terms for ‘super light’ and ‘electric’ and in terms of styling, Artega’s latest creation certainly looks the part.

Technology sounds impressive with no less than four electric motors (two driving the front wheels and two driving the rears). Artega is claiming combined output of 760kW/1620Nm.

That translates into zero to 100km/h in 2.7 seconds (same as the Tesla Model S P100D) and a top speed of 300km/h.

As for range, Artega says the 120kWh battery will be good for 500kms between recharges.

Artega is a serial European Motor Show exhibitor but so far has only produced limited numbers of its GT sports car and that was the best part of a decade ago.

The company actually filed for bankruptcy in July 2012, so despite claims of production commencing in the second quarter of 2019 (only 50 cars will be made)and with a price tag approaching $AU2.0 million, we’re tipping you won’t be pulling-up next to an Artego Superellectra in the carpark of your local Bunnings any time soon.
