Bristol will soon reveal an all-new hybrid supercar which might make its debut this July at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Bristol Motors was acquired in 2011 by Kamkorp Autokraft which represents a subsidiary of Frazer-Nash and at that time they promised to launch hybrid and electric cars. This will happen later this year as Bristol will unveil a supercar using a range-extended powertrain which will send the permanent electric drive to all four wheels, while a gasoline engine (probably a compact rotary) will power a generator to feed the lithium-ion batteries.
The 2009 Namir Hybrid Concept in these pictures has a hybrid powertrain combining an 814cc endothermic rotary engine with four electric motors producing a total of 370 hp (276 kW), enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 187 mph (300 km/h).
