If you have never heard of E-Legend before neither have we. But if you can pay a PR agency to conjure up a good press release supply some inspirational 3D renderings then hey presto… you have the E-Legend EL1. The company is based in Beilngres, about 35km from Ingolstadt. The company was founded by Marcus Holzinger a former VW designer who also runs his own product design agency. As for the E-Legend EL1, it’s a pure electric car homage to the classic Audi Quattro S1 Rally. E-Legend is making some bold claims.

The E-Legend EL1 will be powered by three electric motors and a 90kWh battery pack producing over 816bhp. It is designed to offer a range of 248 miles and will zap from 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds. The two rear-mounted electric motors will offer torque vectoring. The monocoque is made from carbon fibre to keep weight down but it will still weigh in at around 1,680kg.

Admittedly, the renderings do make a visual impact, and if you know your Audi Quattro history or not the Legend EL1 does look mighty tempting. But it will come at a cost, only 30 units are planned and each one is provisionally priced at $1.19M USD. However, questions remain. We’re not too sure from where Holzinger is going to source the underlying electric vehicle technology.

We concluded that he will most likely use a stock Porsche Tycan as a donor vehicle. And we also concluded that these renderings are designed to generate interest and business inquires. For all we know E-Legend’s HQ could be a moth-eaten tent, situated in the middle of a dense German forest.
