Basically an MP4-12C powertrain (3.8 TT V8, 7-speed dual-clutch) with an electric motor added, also putting power down through the rear wheels. ICE is 727HP, electric motor is 176HP, so power under electric boost is 903HP.

Odd that they didn't hook up the electric motors to the front wheels like the Porsche 918, near-4-digit horsepower won't be easy to control through the rear wheels alone.

Yeah, 903hp through the rear tires should be interesting. Hopefully they'll put some sticky rubber on there like the Pilot Sport Cups on the ZR1.
