Pistonheads is reporting that the Connaught company is ready to launch its first sports coupe, the Type-D Syracuse, powered by a super small, 2.0-liter V10 producing 300hp and 274 lb-ft of torque. The 2+2 coup-ay is made entirely of composites and stainless steel with aluminium panels, giving it a curb weight of around 1650 lbs and zero-to-60mph times of under five seconds (top speed, 170). The company is also working on a hybrid-drive version, which it claims will get 42mpg. Maybe next year. [Update: Edmunds has some photos of Syracuse in a rear three-quarter view. Hmm.]
