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.
