Let’s say you have enough money to last you at least a few lifetimes and you’re looking to splurge it on something that not a lot of people have in this world have. Wouldn’t you opt for a high-powered, street-legal, electric sports car as your choice in burning all that money away? Well, German automaker, e-Wolf, has something that should interest you. It’s called the Alpha-1 SRF - ’SRF’ stands for Silent Radical Force - and it’s about the most awesome-looking electric sports car you’ll ever find.
Based on the chassis of Radical Sports Cars, the Alpha-1 SRF is not your ordinary electric sports car. It’s got the look of an LMP1 racer, except that its street-legal. So you pretty much get the best of both worlds with a car that resembles those LeMans racers, but is legal to drive out on the road.
The only thing that sets this thing back is the price tag, which you’ll find out after the jump. But like we said, if you’re the type to burn that much money at a moment’s notice, then you won’t have any trouble paying to take this awesome electric sports car home to your garage.
UPDATE 07/05/2011: The new Alpha-1 SRF has recently been caught testing at Nürburgring and spy photographers believe that the car is about to break the track’s record for electric cars. Hit the jump for the video.
More details on the e-Wolf Alpha-1 SRF after the jump.
More than a year and a name-change after German niche auto builder, e-Wolf, introduced the E2 - it has since been rechristened as the Alpha 2 - we finally have an idea on what kind of specifications the electric super car will carry.
The E2 - now Alpha 2 - was introduced right around the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show and after a little under two years we finally know that the electric supercar will be powered by two electric motors delivering a combined peak output of 375 horsepower and 590 lb/ft of torque. This setup will give the Alpha 2 a 0-62 mph time of just 3.9 seconds, a top speed of 143 mph, and a range of 186 miles on a single charge.
More than anything else, though, the e-Wolf Alpha-2, together with the Protoscar Lampo 3 and the Delta E-4 Coupe, is a sign that things aren’t looking as bleak for the supercar industry when the ’green revolution’ finally takes shape.
Just goes to show that even when the industry is slowly rounding the corner towards a more eco-friendly approach in their vehicles, there are still brands like e-Wolf that can help satiate the appetites of speed junkies the world over.
