Honestly until battery technology improves supercar and electric do not belong together
Edmond Gebara Feb 07, 2013
It's like someone mixed a Kawasaki helmet with my asshole.
Reva Barris Feb 06, 2013
It looks like a Lamborghini concept or something
Brennan Taylor Feb 06, 2013
I don't know it's strange
Paul Rankin Feb 05, 2013
It looks like a car that would have been designed 15 years ago if someone had told the designer to design a Lamborghini for the future.
Janak Solanki Feb 05, 2013
Ugh. I just got the chills
Gray Conron Feb 05, 2013
It's ok but those rims made me puke
Dylan Bruder Feb 05, 2013
I think it looks alright
Jenn Kyoan McCullough Feb 05, 2013
Kind of an ugly grill
Description: The supercar will use a range-extended powertrain sending permanent electric drive to all four wheels, with a Wankel rotary gasoline engine powering a generator to feed the lithium ion batteries. Bris...

Braxton you better take that back before Papa No Pistons gives you a stern talking to.
Cory Olner Feb 05, 2013
Isn't using a wankel to power a generator kinda an oxi-moron?
Dylan Bruder Feb 05, 2013
Reliability would be my main concern
Jörgen Nilsson Feb 05, 2013
And the Rotary can be efficient at a specific rpm, which is ideal in this case.
David Jefferis Feb 05, 2013
Lighter, smoother, smaller - could be ideal for this application.
Braxton Omgbased Booker Feb 05, 2013
Woah rotarys aren't even efficient so why use one unless its for the compact design
Description: The Namir's hybrid powertrain combined an 813cc Wankel engine and four electric motors, with peak output rated at 400 horsepower and 0-60mph at 3.5 seconds. Top speed was said to be 186mph, but w...

@Dustin no lm talking about the Bristol Fighter its made here in England they mentioned it at the beginning of the article.Its been around a while now
Jörgen Nilsson Feb 05, 2013
Read the article! The Rotary is used to power the batteries. The batteries is powering the electric motors, which produce the mentioned 400 hp.
Justin Harris Feb 05, 2013
I heard that the only big problem with a rotary was it doesn't combust fuel very well because of the lower pressures it creates or something like that.
Jeremy Tyler Feb 05, 2013
Oh my bad it actually has 4 electric motors!!! Why does it need a rotary engine? Lol
Jeremy Tyler Feb 05, 2013
A rotary hybrid? Sounds like Mazda's new RX-7 about to come out. 400hp, that's it? I used to own a RX-8 that I put a twin turbo kit on it and it made 450whp. You think with 2 electric motors and a rotary engine the hp out put should be over 500?!
Leonard Pai Chidamwoyo Feb 05, 2013
I like their Viper powered super car with the 8.0 litre twin turbo v10 with over 1000bhp.No one has tested it tho to my knowledge
Ben Bright Feb 05, 2013
Cubic CENTIMETERS not cubic inches...and 400hp is very good for 800ccs
David Markham Feb 05, 2013
800cc is less than 1L engine. Thats a friggin bike engine. So about 10x smaller than an SRT power plant.
Corey Alan Kelley Feb 05, 2013
That's almost the size of the SRT10 with 50% less horsepower I think the whole idea of this car needs to be rethought I don't have anything against hybrids that aren't a Chevy Volt that the government helps pay for But this seems like a step backward
Corey Alan Kelley Feb 05, 2013
Thoughts numbers don't sound too spectacular I know it's a rotary not a piston engine but is the wankel really that inefficient? I could've sworn there was an article about an 1800hp rotary supercar not too long ago with a sub 3 second 0-60
Reva Barris Feb 06, 2013
Would look 20x better if the food didnt look like a triangle and that black triangle wasnt on the hood
António Villas-Boas Feb 06, 2013
I think it looks quite good and very different from most supercars
Brennan Taylor Feb 06, 2013
I agree with Ben-Tuatara's evil twin...
Benjamin Levin-O'Leary Feb 05, 2013
SSC tuatara anyone?
Augie Schroer Feb 05, 2013
Wouldn't buy it
Author Norman R. Colson Feb 05, 2013
Sexy electric I need it in black!
Janak Solanki Feb 05, 2013
Looks like a dust buster
Colby Church Feb 05, 2013
I think it looks neat.
Matt Piccolo Feb 05, 2013
Not bad, I like it
Gavin Jaunky Feb 05, 2013
Nose is too long.
Jason Mosery Feb 05, 2013
Looks like the old Pontiac Banshee concept.
Ben Bright Feb 05, 2013
I think it's ugly...but that's just my opinion.
Ivan Gomez Feb 05, 2013
Ugly looking car, looks like a 90s era camaro
Adam Thomson Feb 05, 2013
Nice looking for a Bristol...
Jake Hoffman Feb 05, 2013
I hate when car manufacturers try to make electric vehicles look like electric vehicles. That is why I love the tesla
Will Will Feb 05, 2013
The two women are fighting for the car...but at the end it's their husbands who pay for it.
Mark Donnelly Feb 05, 2013
the back looks like a noble mixed with a lambo in the rear
Brennan Taylor Feb 06, 2013
Ugly as
Christo Savaides Feb 07, 2013
Almost as if it's rendered...
Brennan Taylor Feb 06, 2013
Yeah it does
Janak Solanki Feb 05, 2013
Looks cartoony
Johnny Matias Feb 05, 2013
Lol @connor
Connor Scanlon Feb 05, 2013
That's weird cause I thought it looked like a car
Treston Ott Feb 05, 2013
Okay that was weird dude you just read my mind I was thinking it looked like a power ranger too
Mark Hammer Feb 05, 2013
Looks... Like a Power Ranger. And I wouldn't consider that a good thing.
