I hate hybrids. Hopefully they'll offer an entry level model without the 36,000 rpm fly wheel of death.

I'm confused why they now have that 'flux capacitor' thing when an earlier working model had an open passenger seat?

This is a racecar not a street car. the kers needs to be as low and centrally located as possible so it doesn't throw the car off the track. Also if the fly wheel blows out of the housing they want to make sure it kills the driver instantly as opposed to some disfiguring lifelong injury.

Exactly, the GT was never a looker in my books, just like the Enzo, Veyron (ok, not barf-inducing, but not very good-looking nonetheless)

I've never known anyone not to like the looks of the CGT. It looks great in pictures but in the flesh... sweet Jesus.
