Being acquired by an affiliate of Frazer-Nash after it went bankrupt earlier this year, British car manufacturer, Bristol, may develop a 200 mph all-wheel drive hybrid sports car.

“Over the next few months we will start to reveal the details of our plans to combine Bristol Cars tradition and iconic marque with Frazer-Nash’s pioneering technology to showcase our cutting-edge electric and range-extended powertrains”, said the director of operations for Frazer-Nash, William Chia, after Bristol was acquired by Frazer-Nash in April 2011.

According to Evo magazine, the cooperation between Frazer-Nash and Bristol Cars could lead to the development of a hybrid supercar, which will use a pair of electric motors, one in the front and one in the rear, with a rotary engine functioning primarily as a “generator” to keep the batteries charged.

A platform from an outside manufacturer could be used by Bristol and the hybrid supercar is scheduled to hit the production line in 2013, according to Evo magazine.
