324 MPH Hybrid 'Supercar'

The Swiss-designed Acabion GTBO has a separate 2kw electric motor for short, low-speed journeys and reversing.

Published: 19-Jun-2007

Even though the Swiss car can hit almost 350mph, its top speed is limited to 292mph -still far quicker than the world's current fastest road car, the 253mph Bugatti Veyron.

It also trumps the huge Bugatti's 16.4litre engine - with a capacity of just 1.4 litres.

Although its engineer Dr Peter Maskus insists it is a supercar, it has more in common with a motorbike, with a motorcycle engine, wheels, tyres and bike-style in-line seats.
