Capstone_CMT-380_photo1_610x346Here’s a tip: keep an eye out for the Los Angeles Auto Show about to take place. Why? Because it will feature the product of a very surprising alliance between Capstone and the Chief Creative Director of Electronic Arts, Richard Hilleman.

And what result is that? The CMT-380, classified not just as a hybrid but as a sports car as well. It utilizes an electric power train along with a microturbine that is diesel fueled and range extending. It has a battery pack of lithium polymer, which gives the vehicle a pure electric range of eighty miles. The microturbine makes for an astonishing five hundred more miles.

A kit car platform is responsible for the build of the car — specifically, the platform for the Factory Five Racing GTM supercar.
