The Minerva J.M. Brabazon is a hybrid supercar promising big things. The Audi R8-esque supercar is the first model announced by Minerva, a Belgian luxury car company that has been defunct since 1956. The J.M. Brabazon gets its unique name from a British race car driver.

The Minerva J.M. Brabazon pairs two electric motors (which drive the front wheels) to a twin-turbo V12 engine mated to a six-speed F1 gearbox. All told, the company estimates that its supercar will be able to hit 248 mph. The car will also feature five running modes: safe mode, economy, normal, sport and race. Since the Minerva J.M. Brabazon only exists in conceptual form at the moment, it's probably best to be cautiously optimistic regarding its release. Stats for Conceptual Belgian Supercars Trending: Older & Mild
