They planned to release 250 cars, but only made 2 and scrapped the program. Shame, they were almost affordale at 1.2 million pounds each 8-)

It's great this kind of technology is developed, that's for sure.
But why does it have to be in a supercar? Now it is not effective. The only people that could afford such a car will drive them sometimes when they're not riding there more consuming cars.
They could have gone for a less expansive, less performing car that would probably be accessibel to more people and thus be more effective in reducing pollution. Also because it would not be a more performing car, it would consume and pollute even less.
I think it's a waste of money in some way (surely not in esthetics, I have to admit that). the money could have gone to develop a everyday car, efficient car.

All that style...
All that craftsmanship...
All that technology...

And then they stick the steering wheel on the wrong side :D

#1, isn't it a hybrid, meaning there's an electric engine too contributing towards total power? So how can you say total power divided by only gas engine volume. It's like a Tesla has infinity hp/L, since engine size is 0

The petrol engine alone is a 1.6L producing 500hp...

#8 Yes but think about it , the petrol motor is the one doing the work , even if you consider regenerative braking the petrol motor still provided the power to get the car up to speed and now they then recover that power by pumping it back in to a battery bank or super cap bank for later.

Unless your plugging it in every night to charge ....all that power still originally came from the petrol motor.

Also that 1.6 turbo is insane at 500+hp , crying out loud lets look at a example

2013 SRT Viper 8.4L v10 ....640hp ? Need I say more....well done Jag

Nice car but I wish they'd stuck to the original concept, see:

#11 But how long do you think a supercharged AND turbocharged 1.6 litre engine turning over 10,000 rpm's is going to last? This whole project was about what could be done , not what should be done, with all that technology.
The viper engine is good for 100+ thousand miles.

#14 I have to give you that , yea those big ass blocks are built to last and I think 100+ is a understatement.

And I should say it , I know people here with Toyota Starlets (jap imports called glanza V) and they insure them as 1.3 starlets while there actually turbo charged.

While there funny to watch and sound hilarious pulling off doing 20 mile an hour going threw 2 gears and hearing the poxy little dump's :P

But ya look on any advert site here in ireland they are all advertised as "for scrap" or "turbo blown" so yea great to be able to do it but what's the point in making something to break.

#14 Big blocks turning over slowly certainly tend to a long life but my daughter's Honda Civic (8000 rpm regularly) has been round the clock twice (2,000,000+) and hasn't ever had the top off.

I'm sorry to say that, but they don't have the steering wheel on the wrong side... They have it on the right side. :D
