Video: e-Wolf Alpha-1 SRF

Last week we brought you photos of the new e-Wolf Alpha-2 electric supercar, set to launch in 2012. This week we are pleased to bring you video of e-Wolf's stripped out racecar. The e-Wolf Alpha-1 SRF (Silent Radical Force) has a chassis sourced from British company Radical Sports Cars and is powered by two electric motors which put out 380.7hp. A massive 770lbs 41.5kWh lithium-ion battery supplies the motors with plenty of juice for high performance. In total, the car maintains a light weight at around 2,200lbs.

The Alpha-2's handling is incredible. Watching the e-Wolf Alpha-1 SRF cutting through cones (0:26) reminds me of a National Geographic special with a wolf cutting through trees chasing its prey. No, really. Just watch the video below.

It does take time to charge up, as the battery takes a hefty eight hours to charge on a regular household power outlet, but it gives you a nice 186 mile range. The range boosts dramatically to 250 miles if you limit your speed to 31mph. The the Alpha-1 SRFcan hit a top speed of 143mph and boast a pretty nice acceleration of 0-62mph in just 3.9 seconds. The track-only e-Wolf Alpha-1 SRF stickers at a rather expensive $306,000.
