i doubt they gonna use electric motor assist. basically, the main point of racing and supercar. is produce enuff speed and horsepower to speed junkie. and to get speed and horsepower, the engine must be very light, and the car also must be light.
electric motor assist comes with the motor itself which is very heavy. and the its own controller. and super heavy battery pack. thats heavy. supercar with lower CC and electric motor assist? don tink so. but if with turbo or supercharger. i bet we can see it in future.
1.6cc doesnt mean the engine sound gonna be like normal waja. hello, F1 tech. either using v6 or v8. but the piston, crank etc gonna be really really small,lightweight and very pack. but the compression should be higher. thats where the power and the nice sounds came along.
u guys got to know something. bigger CC doesnt mean it has bigger HP. :)
