    So what makes this thing a hybrid, is there an electric motor in it?
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    "
    The TS030s use a snazzy THS-R (Toyota Hybrid System - Racing) powertrain, featuring an all-new 3.4-litre normally aspirated V8 petrol engine and hybrid system with capacitor storage."

    Not sure what a capacitor storage is, but sounds Hybrid to me.

    A capacitor is just like a battery, but capable of much much higher rates of charge and discharge.

    It is pretty awesome to see someone short one out. Sounds like a gunshot, with a huge amount of power being discharged instantaneously.
