The Reptile Concept Car with 700 Horsepower Leaves Prius in the Dust

Forget everything you know about hybrid cars before you check out the Reptile concept car. The Reptile concept car is a hybrid roadster designed by Arturo Arino that packs a monstrous 700 horsepower.

For a gas-powered car, 700 horsepower is impressive, but for a hybrid car to have that much power under the hood is unheard of! The electric engine will power the Reptile through any regular periods of driving with the 2700cc gas-powered engine giving you that extra oomph when needed. Arino is aiming to keep the Reptile from needing to be plugged in by designing it with a regenerative technology to capture electricity from the rotating wheels.

Like all amazing cars, the Reptile is still just a concept, but I'm going to hope against hope that this eco-friendly bad boy one day sees the streets.
