Mercedes-Benz has produced an electric vehicle that could very well be the electric-vehicle game changer if it weren’t so darn costly.

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive car offers performance that makes most gas-firing cars wet their little-boy britches. The all-wheel-drive vehicle produces 740 horsepower and its outer shell looks as if it might transform into a Terminator-chasing liquid-metal cop at any moment. Its 60 kWk of battery storage translates into a single-charge range of around 155 miles. Put that in your Chevy Volt and explode it!

Presently, the SLS AMG Electric Drive is only going to be sold in Europe for around $536,804. It will be Mercedes-Benz’s most expensive vehicle since the Maybach was sent to the glue factory.
