A number of automakers have introduced hybrid supercars but Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez isn't having any of it.

A number of automakers have introduced hybrid supercars but Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez isn't having any of it.

Speaking to Drive, Bez said "Hybridization has two aspects, like in F1 to pass someone, which is irrelevant on the road, and the other is to be more fuel efficient. But it is very simple; if you drive a little slower you will be much better off.”

Instead, Bez wants to improve fuel efficiency by making cars lighter and more aerodynamic. As he noted, the company has improved their fuel efficiency by 30 percent - in the last five years - by reducing weight and improving the efficiency of their engines.

However, Bez is a realist and recognizes the future will likely bring changes to meet increasingly strict fuel economy and emission standards. As he explained, the V12 can still exist in five to ten years but it won't necessarily displace six liters as it "can be five liters or a smaller one."
