The Artega Scalo marked the impressive rise from ashes of the once defunct German carmaker Artega Automobil when it was unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Employing a pure electric drive unit, the Artega Scalo is regarded as the direct successor for the carmaker’s awe-inspiring conventionally powered Artega GT sports car.
A year and a half after the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, the low-volume German sports car maker is raising the tempo substantially by unveiling a new version of the Scalo that is much lighter and incredibly more powerful. Artega is proud to unveil the new Artega Scalo Superelletra – a superlight electric GT car filled with performance-enhancing steroids.
As to how this electric supercar got its name, the term “Scalo” refers to a special Westphalian stallion that was awarded as the 2010 Galloper of the Year. Interestingly, Scalo was trained near the carmaker’s headquarters. “Superelletra,” meanwhile, is a wordplay on the italian terms “Superleggera” (means “super light”) and “elettrica” (means “electric”).
