Speaking with Car and Driver, Dürheimer revealed the plug-in hybrid system will be heavily based on Volkswagen technology. He also indicated the system could be equipped to the W12 engine as well as the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 which was recently added to the Continental GT and GTC. It will apparently use an electric motor, that is sandwiched between the engine and transmission, to give the vehicle (or vehicles) an electric-only range of approximately 25-30 km (16-19 miles).
