The Bristol GT range-extender supercar will be able to reach a top speed of 200 mph (322 km/h) and do 100 mpg UK (83.2 mpg US or 2.8 liters / 100 km) in the city.

The four-seater, two-door coupe will be shown in concept form before the end of this year, with a production model estimated to cost "under 200,000 GBP", according to Kamal Siddiqi who is Bristol's owner and chairman.

It will have approximately the same size as a Bentley Continental and will the borrow powertrain from the 2009 Giugiaro Namir Concept. That one had four electric motors, a mid-mounted gasoline-powered 814cc rotary engine and a lithium polymer battery pack. The electric motors were installed at the front and rear on the suspension and provided 362 bhp (270 kW).

The production version is set to receive a "digital differential" which promises to maintain traction intelligently, while at the same time providing necessary torque and chassis stability. There aren't any details about when the production model will hit the market but Siddiqi said the company will make "several hundred a year."
