Susie Wolff test-drove the new Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ in the “AMG for Women” event. She drove the electric high-performance sedan in Berlin and around the capital of Germany.
Team Principal of Venturi Racing in Formula E, wife of Team Principal Toto Wolff of Mercedes-AMG Petronas, and mother of one, Susie Wolff took the time to fly to Berlin to join the “AMG for Women” event. The former pro racing driver talked about women in motorsport and test-drove the new Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+. It’s the car that hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.4 seconds from a standstill. That’s once you push the throttle pedal to the metal.
With two electric motors and 685 horsepower and 1,020 Nm of torque, the electric sports sedan doesn’t even hold a candle to the cars she used to drive around the race track. But she retired back in 2015 and resorted to family cars. She and her husband Toto Wolff have been driving a Mercedes-Benz GLE and a Mercedes-Benz E-Class among others. And she is currently using a Mercedes EQC crossover around Monaco, where she works.
That is when she is off two wheels. Susie also uses an electric scooter, which makes parking easier in the narrow streets of the French Riviera. The Scottish often posts photos from bike rides on her Facebook and Instagram as well. The latest of them took her to Sanremo, Italy, right across the border, with her 4-year old son, Jack (check out the photo gallery).
The bike is the means of transportation for the Wolff family in Toto’s hometown, Vienna, where they spend a couple of days after having celebrated their wedding anniversary in Venice.
Susie Wolff relaxes in Southern Europe, while husband Toto is under pressure in Brazil
Meanwhile, husband Toto Wolff is preparing for the Brazil Grand Prix, with Valtteri Bottas starting from pole and Lewis Hamilton starting 10th, following two penalties.
The British driver ended up disqualified for the sprint race on Saturday due to issues on the tail wing. He is also taking a 5-place grid penalty after his team decided to fit a new engine to his car.
