Hybrid Hopeful

Hoping to make a big impact with its innovative hybrid powertrain that blends a 2.1-litre V10 petrol engine with a clean-running electric motor is the Connaught Type-D. The British-designed rear-wheel-drive two-plus-two coupe, the shape of which exhibits shades of Audi TT and Nissan 350Z, is slated to weigh just 750kg without fluids, and is the brainchild of two ex-Jaguar engineers, Tim Bishop and Tim Martindale.
