This Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-cell prototype cranks up its neck-snapping torque with four electric motors — two on each axle. Hold onto your lunch, because its 526hp is about to rock your world from 0 to 60 in about the amount of time it takes for you to begin comprehending the word fahrvergnügen, or about four seconds. 6.2-liter V8 has been replaced by a several cubic feet of electronics, motors and high-voltage cabling. Inside, we get a glimpse of the new instrument cluster, including a display that can toggle between the battery’s state of charge and power flow or the navigation information.
