The Capstone Turbine CMT-380 is the latest hybrid supercar being developed to offer discerning sports car drivers of the future a cleaner means of pursuing their passion. The hybrid is powered by a combination of lithium polymer batteries and an ultra-low emissions, range-extending microturbine engine that runs on diesel or biodiesel. It’s a combination that provides a claim of 0 to 60 in under 4 seconds, 150 mph top speed and 500 miles on a single tank of fuel. Of course, claims are always easy to make when your car is still a concept.
The car will get up to 80 miles of range driving in zero-emissions, electric mode, and when the batteries drain, the microturbine kicks in, recharging them and extending the range up to the 500-mile mark.
The CMT-380 will be on display at LA. [via Motor Authority]
