You know how it is, when you live in Germany and speed limits aren't very highly regarded, you need a fast car to get you around. With the price of oil, and effectively, petrol prices, climbing, you need a fast car that's also green. That's where e-WOLF comes in.

The company has been renowned for producing electric vehicles for some time and this is the company's latest performance-oriented development. The e-WOLF Alpha-2 is an exotic Ferrari/Lamborghini lookalike that offers plenty of go with its show, only it does without the fuel-hungry petrol-powered engine.

Using two electric motors to power the rear wheels, the Alpha-2 produces a combined output of 280kW and 800Nm of torque. The company says the two motors provide enough grunt to propel the sleek EV from 0-100km/h in just 3.9 seconds, and to a top speed of 240km/h.

e-WOLF says the car's batteries can be recharged to 80 percent in just 30 minutes while a full-charge range is around 300km. Reports say prices will start at €292,000 ($396,940).
