The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is happening at the end of the month, and while the event mostly shines the spotlight on pristine examples of classic cars, it’s also a place for manufacturers to show off their latest and greatest. This year, Mercedes-Benz is joining Audi in revealing another electric-powered supercar, and Stuttgart’s effort is called the EQ Silver Arrow.

A teaser video has been released, showing chief designer Gorden Wagener sketching the show car. While EQ may be Mercedes’ nascent forward-thinking electric vehicle sub-brand, the car seen in the sketch features a retrofuturistic design, with the shapely bodywork and a buttress aft of the seats harking back to the eponymous pre-war Silver Arrows race cars.

The car was previewed by the Aesthetics Progressive Luxury sculpture, which also sported a large rear fin to aid high-speed stability. The said fin bears a striking resemblance to the one on the Project One, a hybrid hypercar that shares the 1.6 litre turbocharged V6 engine and two of its four electric motors with the championship-winning F1 W07 Hybrid race car from 2016.

Mercedes-Benz has dabbled with electric supercars before with the SLS AMG Electric Drive, the limited-run model used a total of four motors and a 400-volt, 48 kWh lithium-ion battery pack to deliver 740 hp, 1,000 Nm of torque of torque, 250 km of range and a zero-to-100 km/h sprint time of 3.9 seconds.
