Belgium certainly isn’t known for producing supercars, but a brand new supercar concept from Minerva dubbed the Minerva JM Brabazon is set to change that. The Minerva JM Brabazon is yet another hypercar with a claimed top speed in excess of 250hp and features an advanced hybrid powertrain.
The Minerva JM Brabazon features a mid-mounted V12 engine of unknown displacement, and could reportedly have a perfect 1 to 1 power-to-weight ratio. Combine that internal combustion engine with an electric motor at each wheel and the Minerva JM Brabazon could indeed be a truly incredible, all-wheel drive hypercar.
That powertrain is then complemented with a carbon fiber monocoque and as a result, it’s not hard to believe that such a car could top 250mph. However, as we know from similar projects in the past, designing a supercar capable of 250mph+ top speeds is one thing, but actually making those claims a reality is something else entirely. No acceleration details about the Minerva JM Brabazon have been released but suffice to say, it’d be quick.
From a design standpoint, the Minerva JM Brabazon has a shape similar to the brand new 2014 McLaren P1, as well as headlights and front air intakes reminiscent of the Audi R8. At the back, the Minerva looks like a widebody Artega GT.
