Published on October 26, 2013 by Tycho de Feijter
A great video showing the new BYD Qin hyrbid super car drag racing eight other speedy cars. The BYD Qin is the most powerful mass market hybrid in the world, with a combined output of 303hp and 440nm. But can it beat the petrol-powered competition? They are:
Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0 TSI with 211hp and 280nm.
Subaru BRZ with 200hp and 250nm.
Mini Cooper S with 184hp and 240nm.
Volkswagen Golf GTI with 211hp and 280nm.
Ford Focus ST with 250hp and 345nm.
Mitsubishi Lancer EVO VIII with 280hp and 390nm.
Nissan 350Z with 287hp and 371nm.
Volkswagen Passat CC 3.6 V6 with 300hp and 350nm.
The Qin is powered by a hybrid drivetrain consisting of a 1.5 liter turbo four cylinder petrol engine and an electric motor. The 1.5 turbo poops out 154hp and 240nm, the electric motor 149hp and 200nm. Gearbox is a new BYD-developed 6-speed DCT.
The shiny silver Bling BYD Qing stands in the middle of the pack, ready to hybrid them all. Here we go.
Bet you didn’t expect that… The BYD clearly needs something even faster for a serious match. Next up, a LaFerrari?
