Diesel hybrids - the fast ones

First up; Volvo has just set a speed record of 236.5km/h in the Mean Green hybrid truck which uses a 2100hp diesel/electric similar to those used in Volvo city buses. (http://www.gizmag.com/world-hybrid-truck-speed-record/22414/)

Next Audi, a long proponent of diesel technology including the famous Le Mans smashing R10 TDI, is showing off the R18 e-tron (hybrid) quattro, which just finished second in the Spa six hour endurance race.
