Famed design studios of Italdesign Giugiaro and the Brits from Frazer Nash teamed up to come up with the “world’s fastest hybrid” vehicle in the world. Unveiled in Geneva the other day, Namir (the Arabic word for tiger) is a plug-in hybrid concept with a carbon fiber chassis and unique honeycomb panels that scream power. With 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 depleted, the Namir is putting out a whopping 370 hp, has a top speed of 187 mph and a 1,200 mile range. Capable of accelerating from 0 to 62mph in just 3.7 seconds and to 124 mph in a mere 10.4 seconds, we’d love to hear that tiger roaring. [Images via LeftLane]
