A few weeks agowe brought you a videofrom theDrivechannel in whichChris Harriswrung out the newMercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Seriesduring its press launch event at France’sCircuit Paul Ricard. What you might not have known is thatMercedesandAMGused the very same event to debut theSLS AMG Electric Drive, the gas-free Gullwingwe first came to knowas theSLS E-Cell. So naturally, even though he loves loud, petrol-chugging conventional cars, he took the opportunity to sample this most powerful AMG production car ever.

Needless to say, after watching the video, you get the feeling that Chris came away rather impressed with the SLS AMG Electric Drive. Of course, with750hpat his right foot’s disposal, how could he not? But it seems like he was even more in awe of the car’s torque vectoring capabilities, and to be honest, so are we. Amazing what powering each wheel independently can do, huh?
