It is called Namir and was born as a collaboration between Italdesign Giugiaro and Frazer-Nash, a company specialized in the design and construction of hybrid systems. A concept which is the fastest hybrid car in the world.
The Arabian name Namir, meaning “tiger��?, shows the content of the concept car: elegance and power, aggressiveness and litheness of lines. The supercar’s performance are a top speed over 300 km/h (187 mph) and an acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and from 0 to 200km/h in 10.4 seconds.
Namir is also an ecological vehicle. The hybrid system developed together with Frazer-Nash combines an 814 cc endothermic rotary engine with four electric motors, guaranteeing autonomy of 39 km with one litre of fuel CO2 emissions of less than 60 grams per km travelled.
The prototype was built entirely in the Italdesign Giugiaro plant and will not go on sale.
