Italdesign Shows-off the World’s Fastest Hybrid

March 5, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Renowned automobile designer Italdesign officially unveiled what they claim will be the fastest hybrid car at the Geneva Motor Show, this week. The ‘Namir hybrid concept’ which looks a lot like last year’s Quaranta concept car, boasts 370hp, a scorching top speed of 187mph, and will be able to travel over 1,200 miles without a refill or a charge.


Italdesign who teamed with Frazer-Nash on the Namir, has worked with numerous automakers on concepts, production models, prototyping and testing.

Italdesign press release reveals that the hybrid will have a lithium ion battery pack, with overall power of 270 kW, equivalent to 370 hp, fuel efficiency of about 39 km/L, which is about 92 miles to the gallon. Italdesign says the car will release less than 60 g/km of CO2, and with the car’s 50 liter gas tank, the car can travel up to 2,000 km without a refill or a charge.

No word yet whether the Namir will be available in the US, or how much it will cost.
