Default 5.8L V12 Ferrari IMA Hybrid

I'm working with a team on a project in Holland.

Basically it is a new vehicle built from scratch fitted with a 5.8L V12 Ferrari engine from a 612 Scaglietti. The projected power with modified exhaust is 570hp + 13hp from the IMA LOL

The interest for us it has a HCH1 Civic IMA Motor fitted as a starter and assist unit in between the engine and gearbox.

The rotor has been modified and a plethora of new parts have been designed and accurately made to allow the IMA motor to fit as if in a Civic.

This is one of the reasons I have been working on controlling the IMA motor without reference to the Civic ECM. This project uses a custom ECM for the IC engine which will talk to my little interface box, and then in turn the MCM which will drive the IMA and manage the battery as it does now.

Anyway some photos of the work so far to wet your appetite.

Fascinating project. Beautiful machine work. Can't actually figure out the hub pieces from the picture, but assume that they both adapt the mechanical pieces to the Insight rotor and strengthen it.

One quick question, benefiting another discussion. Is the hub material of the Insight rotor aluminum or other?

So what's the point of adding such a piddlingly small amount of electric power?

The IMA as a light replacement of starter and generator perhaps?

Point is for it to act as a starter generator and be able to maneuver/propel the vehicle at low speed.
Something to do with it the qualifying as a hybrid with advantages for tax etc in Holland.

I believe the rotor is a machined steel casting. I don't know what they have done too strengthen it..

Hope it is over engineered by Honda by a factor of about 10!!! LOL..

Maybe they could make use of your and Hugh-Falls research on the tandem motor/generator.

Sounds great. Having IMA means to have a lighter flywheel with that IMA "flywheel emulation".

What output would you expect from the IMA motor when it was fed by a bunch of LiPo or LiFePo batteries?
