Introducing the Electric Pagoda Restomod Everrati, the UK company known for electrifying classic cars like the Ford GT40 and Porsche 911, has turned its sights on an automotive icon – the Mercedes-Benz W113 SL “Pagoda.” This isn’t just a battery swap though. Everrati has performed a ground-up restoration, retaining the timeless aesthetics while converting the drivetrain to all-electric power.

Two Powertrain Options Buyers can choose between two bespoke EV powertrain configurations:

  • Standard: 54.4 kWh battery (241-mile range), 295 hp motor, 0-60 mph in under 8 seconds
  • Touring: 68 kWh battery (300-mile range), 295 hp motor, 0-60 mph in under 7 seconds

Both options have a 124 mph (200 km/h) top speed, making this a quick classic capable of keeping up with modern performance cars.

  • Silent, vibration-free driving experience
  • Zero emissions/eco-friendly motoring
  • Low maintenance compared to vintage combustion cars

Many conversions like this are also reversible, allowing you to go back to the original powertrain if desired. So you can drive electric during the week and classic on the weekends!

The Cost of Electrified Luxury, Of course, this level of resto-mod craftsmanship doesn’t come cheap. The Everrati electric conversion alone costs around $415,000, not including the cost of sourcing a donor Mercedes Pagoda (often $100K+).

You’re paying for:

  • Comprehensive ground-up restoration
  • Bespoke EV powertrain engineering
  • Retaining iconic vintage styling
  • Ultra-low production volumes

So while the ~$500K total cost is huge, it’s the price of melding the ultimate in classic beauty with modern EV performance and convenience.
