Belgian hybrid supercar Minerva J.M. Brabazon packs 1,200bhp

Last summer, Belgian automaker Minerva announced they are back in business after becoming defunct in 1956, by revealing first details about their supercar called J.M. Brabazon, named after a British racing driver.

Almost full details are out and the numbers are impressive.

The J.M. Brabazon features a carbon Kevlar body and carbon fibre monocoque chassis, packing a hybrid system that combines a twin-turbo V12 engine linked to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and two electric motors that power the front wheels for a total output of 1200bhp, taking it reportedly from a 0-60mph in less than 2.1 seconds to a top speed of 250mph (402 km/h).

Range in purely EV mode is 60 miles and the car also has regenerative braking, limited-slip differential, stop/start tech and electronically controlled suspension.

The J.M. Brabazon will be offered in two trim levels: Royal and Excellence, with the first to be fitted with more luxury interior features, while the Excellence will be all about essentials and as light as possible.

Everything about the car sounds nice, but until we see an actual production model on the track we are still a little skeptical about it.
