Recent reports that Artega Automobile may return to the market came true at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show, where the German brand unveiled its latest sports car. But unlike its predecessor, the GT, this new vehicle, which is dubbed Scalo, is an all-electric sports car.

Heavily based on the GT as far as styling goes, the Scalo was developed in cooperation with auto electronics manufacturer Paragon AG, the company which purchased the bankrupt automaker in 2012.

Founded in 2006, Artega showcased its first prototype at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show and commenced production of the GT in 2008. Powered by a Volkswagen- sourced V-6 rated at 296 horsepower, it was praised for its good handling and excellent performance. Also in 2008, Artega announced it was investing in a possible solar-powered concept vehicle to compete with the Tesla Roadster. Artega eventually showcased an electric version of the GT, called the SE (Sports Electric), but the EV never made it on the assembly line due to financial problems.

Three years have passed since Paragon AG put an end to the Artega GT, and the brand is back in business with promises that the Scalo will go on sale in 2016.
