Aston Martin and Bosch Engineering have teamed up to create a DB9 plug-in hybrid prototype.

Designed to showcase how plug-in hybrid technology can improve performance, the prototype has a 6.0-liter V12 engine and two electric motors that power the front wheels. This setup enables the car to produce more than 740 bhp (552 kW), accelerate from 0-100 km/h in approximately 3.7 seconds and have an electric-only range in excess of 16 miles (25.7 km).
