The 18 Coolest Hybrids Ever Built

© Lamborghini

By Brian Silvestro, Road & Track

Not all hybrids are boring. These cars prove it. Here are some of the coolest hybrids out there.


Lamborghini Sián

Lamborghini went all-out with its first-ever production hybrid, the Sián. It pairs a 34-horsepower electric motor to the naturally aspirated V-12 from the Aventador SVJ, and looks otherworldly. Only 63 will exist, and they've all already been sold.

The Speedtail is McLaren's top of the range grand-tourer, sporting a center seating position and combined output of 1035 horsepower. That comes from a twin-turbo V-8 paired to an electric motor, sending power to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.


Ferrari SF90 Stradale

The SF90 Stradale is Ferrari's first mainstream production plug-in hybrid, making 986 horsepower thanks to a twin-turbo V-8 and three electric motors. Power goes to all four wheels, allowing for a 0-60 time of just 2.5 seconds. Ferrari really knows how to do hybrids right.


Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo

It might have the longest, most unoriginal name of any sports car out there, but trust us, the top-tier hybrid Panamera is a hell of a car. It makes an astounding 680 combined horsepower, and that sweet Sport Turismo wagon body style makes it even better.


Jaguar C-X75

Jaguar never officially put its C-X75 supercar into production, but the few prototypes it did build were equipped with a state-of-the-art supercharged and turbocharged four-cylinder engine combined with hybrid batteries.


Porsche 919 Evo

If you still have any reservations about hybrid tech, get this: The current Nurburgring lap record holder, the 919 Evo hybrid, beat its nearest competitor by nearly a minute. That's absurd.


Cadillac ELR

Sure, the ELR may have been way overpriced for what it was, but you have to admit: It looks pretty cool. And because just a handful were built, they how have an aurora of rarity to them as well. It's not every day you see an ELR on the road.


Porsche 918 Spyder

Porsche's hypercar uses a bespoke 4.6-liter V-8 engine that produces 600 horsepower, combined with a pair of front-mounted electric motors that make 282 horsepower together. The result is a world-beating speed machine that broke the Nurburgring production car lap record in 2013.


Aston Martin Valkyrie

The Valkyrie uses a Cosworth Formula 1-based V-12 combined with electric power to propel it down the road. It also looks like an actual LMP1 car for the road. It doesn't get much cooler than this.


Ferrari LaFerrari

The LaFerrari is the first Ferrari road car to break the 900-horsepower barrier, and it does so in spectacular fashion. Thanks to that wonderful V-12 and a pack of batteries behind the driver, it can go from 0-60 in 2.4 seconds, and complete the quarter-mile in 9.7 seconds.


Polestar 1

Polestar is supposed to be an all-electric brand, so seeing it launch with a hybrid is a bit strange. But none of that matters once you get behind the wheel of the Polestar 1. Stunning looks and a world-class driving experience make it one of the best grand tourers we've ever had the pleasure of reviewing.


Porsche 911 GT3-R Hybrid

We actually got to drive Porsche's hybrid-powered GT3 race car back in 2011, and it was fantastic. This was long before the days of the Taycan or 918, and yet, it was still wonderful behind the wheel. It was a Porsche, after all.


Koenigsegg Regera

The Regera has no transmission. Instead, it uses electric power to get away from a stop, and then the engine—which is connected directly to the wheels—fires up. The Regera is unlike any other modern car, and in true Koenigsegg fashion, it's incredibly powerful.


Honda Insight (1st-gen)

Honda’s first Insight was cool because it was different. It had a quirky three-cylinder engine, covered rear wheels for aerodynamic efficiency, and could even be optioned with a manual transmission. Compared to the Prius of the time, it was worlds more interesting.


Acura NSX

The new NSX drives nothing like the old NSX, and that angers a lot of people. But once you really get to feel it out, the new car is unbelievably capable, a masterpiece of technological advancement worthy of praise. It's no wonder it took our 2017 Performance Car of the Year award.


Mercedes-AMG One

© Mercedes-Benz

The AMG One uses two front-mounted electric motors to power the front wheels, and the hybrid turbo V-6 powertrain from AMG's F1 cars to spin the rears. If that's not cool enough for you, we're not sure what is.


McLaren P1

Even five years after production ended on the McLaren P1 hypercar, it remains a benchmark. It may no longer be the fastest car on the block, but it'll always remain special.


BMW i8

The i8 may not be as quick as some of the other cars on this list, but it still looks cool as hell. And with those swing-up doors, you'll always be the center of attention.
