The curious PG Elektrus, unveiled at the beginning of 2012 and not heard of since, has just appeared on sale on Mobile.de in Germany, and the asking price will amaze you.

Inspired by the first-generation Tesla Roadster, Elektrus sought to take what was a promising (but not perfect) d electric sports car and make it better. Elektrus uses one electric motor to develop power of 270 hp. and a torque of 258 lb-ft, which is supposedly enough to accelerate a sports car to a speed of 100 km / h in less than three seconds, and a top speed of about 300 km. / h

The list indicates that this Elektrus was previously a demonstration car and did not drive too much, showing 10,000 km. For comparison: the initial prototype covered almost 100,000 km.

One of the interesting aspects of PG Elektrus is that it is equipped with a sound system that allows the driver to choose between different engine sounds, including an option that repeats the sound of a Formula 1 car.

With a price of 250,000 euros ($ 275,000), this is certainly not a cheap car, and justifying this price tag is not easy, especially considering that some of the best supercars on the planet can be bought for less money.
