, seats two people and has a completely carbon fiber body. The car reportedly has 1000hp from a combination of an 800hp-tuned version of the twin-turbo V8 found in the MP4-12C and a 200hp hybrid unit. That brings total power to 1000hp.

More information about the car is expected to leak out at Pebble Beach.
