Giugiaro Frazer Nash, World's Fastest Hybrid, Teaser No. 1

Teasers are pretty common things these days when automakers across the globe choose to give us a glimpse into how their future models will look like just before important auto events. This is exactly the case of Giugiaro who today rolled out a photo showing the Frazer Nash model set to be displayed at the Geneva Auto Show in March. The picture itself is not, however, the major attraction. The important part is that Giugiaro claims this is the world's fastest hybrid ever released.

According to some figures provided topspeed, the hybrid is capable of reaching a maximum speed of 186 mph, with CO2 emissions rated at only 50 grams per kilometer. Details are pretty limited at this point so we're still waiting for some officials specs released ahead of Geneva.

Wondering what's with the name? Well, nobody knows for sure but Frazer Nash was a British automobile manufacturer founded by Archibald Frazer Nash in 1922. The company didn't produce too many models, with the majority of cars sold after the end of World War II. Approximately 400 models were produced until the mid-'30s. Moreover, Frazer Nash became BMW importer in 1934 while in 1954, the company started selling Porsches in Great Britain.

However, we can't still figure out what's the connection with the hybrid model so, again, the expected official statement will surely put things straight in this matter.

Unfortunately, the teaser issued by Giugiaro doesn't tell us too much about the model to be displayed at Geneva. However, as you can see for yourself in the adjacent photo, the car provides excellent aerodynamics that will surely help it achieve the aforementioned performances.
