Back in 2011, there was some talk of historic British automaker Bristol Cars developing an electric supercar supposedly capable of reaching speeds close to 200 mph, rumors which seemed to be unfounded as the historic auto company had recently folded. Reports of the supercar's release have recently resurfaced, with a supposed release scheduled for as early as the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed in July. The original concept will feature an extended-range electric car designed by Bristol’s associate company Frazer-Nash, four electric motors, and a number of lithium-ion batteries alongside a Wankel rotary engine, with an output of 298 kilowatts (400 hp) and is said to be able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 186 mph.
