Porsche 919 Hybrid
The 919 Hybrid is one of the most advanced race cars on the track today, and has joined the exclusive club of cars that have more than one overall win at the grueling 24 Hours of LeMans. The unique racer gets power from a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with an output of around 500 horsepower directed to the rear wheels, combined with a 400-horsepower electric motor driving the front wheels. The electric motor is charged via converted braking energy as well as thermodynamic energy from the exhaust system.
