Autocar - Frazer-Nash returns at Geneva
The car is cool, but the name seems out of place.
I think they should have made up some futuristic Italian name, not resurrected "Frazer-Nash" for this.
I can't help but think of bulbous 50s family cars...
I wonder if it uses a Moller Rotapac?
Agreed the choice of name seems a bit strange, but then the name has a racing pedigree as well:
I was more concerned about the ability for the 814cc engine to sustain the performance - given the concerns over the Volt genset previously discussed.
A little more further info: Frazer-Nash Research - Hybrid Electric Vehicles
Rule of thumb for rotary engines - double the displacement to estimate performance... (e.g.: Rx7 turbo made 250+HP from 1.3l rotary turbo).
So 814cc is more like 1.6l piston engine, and could make 100+hp.
