While a number of the world’s biggest carmakers have all come down to the LA Auto Show to showcase their latest cars, a number of lesser-known brands have also been making waves at the event, one of which is the Capstone CMT 380 .
Designed and created by Electronic Arts’ Chief Creative Director – awesome job, by the way – Richard Hillerman, the CMT 380 is a hybrid supercar that draws its electric power from 96 lithium-ion batteries coupled with a 30 kw bio-diesel-powered micro turbine giving the hybrid supercar an electronically limited top speed of 150mph and a 0-60mph time of 3.9 seconds. The CMT 380’s electric mode tops at around 80 miles but when the turbine enters the picture, the car’s range skyrockets to around a more-than-worth-it 500 miles.
If the name ‘Capstone’ rings a bell to any of you, they’re company that specializes on providing micro turbines to power office blocks. It might be far-off from the auto industry, but who’s to say they can’t try their luck, right?
