The Numero 9 concept clearly channels the spirit of shooting brakes (it’s 4.9 metres long, but lower than a Porsche 911), and, for that alone, we rather like it. The technology isn’t that radical though. It’s a straight forward plug-in hybrid,which teams the familiar 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol (here with 225bhp) with a 70bhp electric motor mounted on the rear axle to create a 1,500kg 4WD car capable of 0-100kph in 5.4seconds and emitting a mere 39g/kmof carbon dioxide. Oh, and 58.6kpl. But don’t get too impressed, just pray that something like this will ever gets built.
