The fastest hybrid car title has been claimed by makers of the new Frazer-Nash Namir by Giugiaro. A collaboration between the studios of Italdesign Giugiaro and the Brits from Frazer Nash, this fastest hybrid car churns out an impressive 370 hp, has a top speed of 187 mph and a 1,200 mile range. The Namir can accelerate from 0 to 62mph in just 3.7 seconds and to 124 mph in a mere 10.4 seconds! The plug-in hybrid concept features a carbon fiber chassis and unique honeycomb panels. It also features two brushless DC electric motors for the rear and the front axle, a substantial 400V lithium polymer battery underfloor pack and an 0.8-liter gasoline rotary engine that works as a generator when the batteries are used up. Hope to see this concept on the road in my lifetime!
