Giugiaro bringing the fastest hybrid in the world to Geneva

Italdesign-Giugiaro S.p.A, an automobile design and engineering company in Turin, Italy, is most popular for their Ford Giugiaro Mustang Concept. Last year they unveiled Giugiaro Quaranta, a 4WD super sports-car that used a mid-mounted engine coupled with a hybrid system.

Well Giugiaro has something up its sleeve for the 2009 Geneva Motor Show and they are calling it the “fastest hybrid in the world.” Italdesign Giugiaro says that its unnamed concept car will run from 0 to 62 mph in just 4 seconds with a top speed of 186 mph. The Italdesign-Giugiaro fastest hybrid in the world will return an outstanding 124 mpg.

No powertrain info has been provided but the Giugiaro Quaranta was powered by a Toyota 3.3L V6 engine with Hybrid Synergy Drive from the Lexus RX. Stay tuned for more details from Geneva early next month.
