Can a gas-electric hybrid powertrain translate into roadster hijinks? The cats at Westfield think it can. The makers of Lotus 7-style kit cars have teamed with the University of Warwick in the UK to produce a hybrid-drive version of the Westfield SEi. Since the announcement last week, the company's yet to release details, but we're holding out for a combination Hayabusa engine and the same high-torque motor (by AC Propulsion) as in George Clooney's Tango. Talk about cats in a bag.
