The Prius routine was so good, it was only a matter of time before carmakers applied it to something with a little more horsepower. And if price is no object, fuel economy gets a whole lot simpler.

McLaren’s P11 uses the same regenerative braking system that gave the Prius its extra MPGs, but now the vehicle in question is doing 0-60 in under four seconds, and topping out over 200mph. Of course, it should also set the lucky owner back more than $200,000, so it’s not all roses, but it’s nice to see hybrid tech make its way into the upper tier of the industry.

We expect to see one in Leo’s garage any day now…
