If you haven’t heard of David Coulthard, then you’re obviously not into Formula One or motorsports altogether. Coulthard made his Formula One debut in 1994 and won 13 Grands Prix in a career spanning 15 seasons.
Coulthard is now visiting Mercedes-Benz to drive something totally different when compared to a Formula One car – in fact, it’s totally different than any care you might come across on the roads today – Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell Prototype.
Check out Coulthard test driving the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell in the video posted after the jump.
Refresher: The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell Prototype is powered by four electric-motors that produce a total of 526-hp with a peak torque of 649 lb-ft. The four motors are positioned near each wheel with a transmission on each end to transfer power to the street. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell goes from 0-60 mph in 4 seconds. While not confirmed, previous reports suggest a total driving range of 110 miles.
