Jaguar has confirmed the launch of the remarkable C-X75 concept car as a limited hybrid supercar, marked as their most advanced model to date. This high-performance hybrid supercar will stay true to the initial concept design that debuted at the 2010 Paris motor show, while meeting requirements that allows it to be used for road use.
- Mixes internal combustion power with electric motors to achieve supercar performance and less than 99g/km CO2 emissions.
- Downsized highly boosted petrol engine with two powerful electric motors and four-wheel-drive.
- 0-60mph in less than 3 seconds.
- 0-100mph in less than 6 seconds.
- Top speed in excess of 200mph.
- All-electric running range in excess of 50km.
- True-to-concept, lightweight, all carbon-fibre chassis.
- Association with Williams F1.
- Direct technology transfer from top-level motorsport.
- Prices from £700,000, depending on local market and taxes.
- Exclusive limited volume hybrid supercar – only 250 will be built.
Offering performance on a par with the fastest production cars on the market, while adopting cutting-edge technology that offers remarkably economical running, it also marks a new milestone in both company’s histories as Jaguar Land Rover and Williams collaborate for the first time to produce one of the world’s highest performance and environmentally sustainable supercars.
The supercar’s chassis will be made of carbon-fibre to create an incredibly lightweight, yet rigidly strong structure, whilst they continue to develop the use of the micro-turbine technology that was showcased in the original concept car. It will use a state-of-the-art, small-capacity, highly-boosted internal combustion engine with one powerful electric motor at each axle.
When C-X75’s motors and combustion engine combine, it should be one of the fastest production cars in the world, with a sub-three second 0-60mph time and a top speed in excess of 200mph. This performance will be generated alongside low emissions, with a target of less than 99g/km CO2.
The Jaguar C-X75 will only see 250 examples being built, each costing between £700,000 and £900,000, depending on market and local taxes.
