Imperia GP Revealed - Plug-In Hybrid Retro Sports Car

Belgian specialty automaker Imperia Automobiles is back with a new model called GP. The brand was revived in 2008 after a 60 year break.

The Imperia GP follows its retro styling from the past and is in a way similar to Morgan and Wissmann. Underneath the retro exterior is the latest hybrid technology offering sports car like performance and very impressive fuel economy.

Power comes from a 207bhp 1.6 litre turbo engine and a 134bhp electric motor. When the two engines work together, the GP reaches 62mph in 4.0 seconds, or in 6.0 seconds when in electric mode only. Purely in EV mode, the range is 43 miles. Imperia claims that the average fuel economy is just 148 mpg with CO2 emissions less than 50 g/km.

The first edition of the Imperia GP is available this year, priced from 120,360 euros (£101,280).
