McLaren takes its Artura hybrid supercar and drops the top. With 690 horsepower and a dry weight of 3,212 lb., it can zoom from 0 to 62 mph in 3 seconds flat, 0 to 124 mph in 8.4 seconds, towards a top speed of 205 mph. A retractable hardtop transforms the car from its most aerodynamic shape to an open-air, corner-carving roadster.
Bye bye Aventador, hello Revuelto. Lamborghini’s high-performance hybrid combines a naturally-aspirated V12 engine with three electric motors and a unique eight-speed, double-clutch transverse gearbox to produce 1001 horsepower. It zooms from 0-to-62 mph in 2.5 seconds on its way to an insane top speed of 217 mph.
Lots of people put down deposits on Tesla’s CyberTruck, and are still waiting for the electric truck to make it into production. Cyber Hooligan couldn’t wait for Elon to come through on his promises, so he built his own CyberTruck, only this one is based on a wrecked Toyota Prius C – complete with the original hybrid drivetrain.
The recently redesigned Toyota RAV4 gets its most potent and fuel-efficient variant ever. Packing a plug-in hybrid AWD powertrain, the RAV4 Prime produces 302hp, and can do 0-to-60 in 5.8 sec. It can make short hops on pure electric power, while still working like a gas-electric hybrid for road trips, with an estimated 90MPGe.
Bearing the name of the Bolognese word for lightning, the Lamborghini Sián rocks a 785 hp, mid-mounted V12 engine, along with a 34 hp electric motor. The largely carbon fiber car has the best power-to-weight ratio of any Lambo, and can go from 0-to-62 mph in under 2.8 seconds. Only 63 will be made, and they’re all sold.
This stunning coachbuilt Italian sports coupe is built with an ultra-lightweight carbon and aluminum chassis. It’s powered by a hybrid drivetrain with a supercharged 750 hp V8, along with an 215 hp electric motor. Limited to just 150 cars, each one is built by hand to the customer’s specs.
BMW is teasing the future of sports cars with a pewter and orange coupe with butterfly (aka billionaire) doors. The carbon fiber-bodied 2-seater packs a 600hp hybrid drivetrain and can hit 60 mph in less than 3.0s. Its minimal interior has a razor sharp focus on the driver designed to reduce distractions.
Ferrari’s latest supercar delivers 985hp combined horsepower and a 0-to-62mph time of 2.5s, thanks to an all-wheel drive hybrid gas/electric powertrain. It still packs a powerful V8 in back for that iconic exhaust note. Plus, you can plug it in, and get about 25km of pure electric range.
What happens when you take one of the world’s most powerful hypercars and make it off-road ready? This. Sadly, Rain Prisk’s rendering is just a concept, but hopefully some billionaire will make it real some day. For now, we’ll have to settle for a Rally Fighter.
