Last week we brought you the first look at the all new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell and now Mercedes has released a new video of the electric beast on the Atlanterhavsveien (also known as the Atlantic Road).  The video is nearly ten minutes long and could be one of the quietest supercar videos ever.

Despite being battery powered, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell only just fails to match the performance of its sibling that is fitted with a 6.3-litre V8 engine.  With the single-speed transmission, the SLS AMG E-Cell does not go through gear changes and acceleration surges which will make the driver feel as if this is one of the fastest cars on the road.

In case you missed our previous post, the E-Cell features a lithium-ion polymer battery pack and electric motors which produce 392 kW (526 bhp / 533 PS) and 880 Nm (649 lb-ft) of torque. That is enough to propel the SLS AMG E-Cell from 0-62 mph in 4.0 seconds, compared to 3.8 seconds in the standard SLS.

Unique to the SLS AMG E-Cell is the new extended front apron, an extendable front splitter, a wider grille, LED headlights, and 19″ front and 20″ rear wheels. Inside is a radically redesigned center console that boasts a ten-inch touch screen infotainment system, capable of operating audio, climate, and navigation functions while also monitoring the flow of power from the four electric motors.  If all of this is not enough to get you excited about the new Mercedes E-Cell, you also have the “AMG lumilectric magno paintwork”.

According to Dr Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of Daimler AG and head of Mercedes-Benz Cars, the SLS AMG is “set to become one of the most coveted sports cars of our time”.
