They would need a built in sound track to have the beautiful exhaust note that every owner loves.

Sorry, everyone. I didn't find the earlier post about this topic. Wouldn't have posted if I had seen that one.

Gentlemen’s
I am not sure if this EV project was also discussed here ( I could not find it), but more than two years ago I found already the information about this 230SL:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGuYMYk0xd8

Does anybody know this persons? What was the price of this project? And what happen later in daily use?

In the "Motor" circles I am socializing in, I am known as a die-hard opponent of electric vehicles. Some of it is based on the last years of my life on the job, when my company worked on an alternative air-conditioning system and we were dealing with driving ranges of electric vehicles under extreme climate conditions.
Fortunately, I am old enough to not have to change my opinion and consider buying/driving an EV. 8)
