If it's the one I read about, it uses a 3.5/3.6l engine with capacitive storage rather than batteries (read faster power in and out and much lighter also), but produces less than 186g CO2/km, putting it in a reasonable tax bracket on our roads. So you would be getting 4l+ performance for 2l tax/VRT rates.
The argument for hybrid in performance motoring is very compelling - you only need high torque for short periods and that's what electric power excels at. You can then have a smaller petrol engine for cruising.
