The radical, but not-too-bad looking concept you see above is a product of a collaboration between Italdesign Giugiaro and Frazer-Nash. The Namir, which stands for tiger in Arabic, is a hybrid sports car concept that features an 814 cc petrol-powered endothermic rotary engine with four electric motors which enable the concept to deliver 39 kilometers with just litre of fuel, and produces just 60 grams of harmful emissions per kilometer. It is said that the Namir Hybrid Concept is able to do a little more than 300 km/h, and accelerate from naught to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds, making it the fastest hybrid in the world.
With a full tank of fuel (50 litres), the Namir can deliver a total of 2,000 kilometers in terms of driving range. Overall power output is rated at 370HP while energy created by the generator is stored in a Lithium Ion Polymer battery pack. On the inside, you can find three touch screen monitors which are placed behind the hexagonal steering wheel. The central screen displays the speedometer, tachometer, and trip data, the one to the right hosts the GPS display, the audio controls, air conditioning, and relative controls while the one to the left displays technical information like battery charge level, fuel level, interior and exterior temperature, and warning messages.
Other functions like cruise control, exterior lights, windscreen wipers, and electric mirrors can all be activated by touch as well. Overall, the interior is finished in a combination of high grade leather and tweed, while the trunk space is figured at 400 litres.
On the outside, the 2-seater sports car with a total frame weight of 110 kilograms is treated to a sloping V-shaped relief of the central section, a V-shaped glass surface while the rear hood is characterized by highly angular lines that taper from the root towards the rear. Other exterior fitments includes Bi-Xenon head lights, LED lighting implemented in the direction indicators, the tail and rear stop lights and 20 inch OZ wheels. Safety system is made up by ABS, drive control as well as stability control. Continue reading to view an image gallery.
