The C-X16 is the latest 21st century Jaguar sports car that comes powered by a combination of an all-alloy 3.0 liter V6 supercharged engine and a performance-boosting electric motor inspired by Formula One’s Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS). The innovative power system reduces fuel consumption through a hybrid engine as well as collect kinetic energy during braking. The KERS system results in an added performance-on-demand feature, “Push to Pass,” which offers the driver an instant boost of 95 hp and 173 lbs ft for up to 10 seconds. The exterior is constructed from a lightweight aerospace aluminum, while the inside underlines the ‘One plus One’ layout by deliberately creating a cocooned space. The interior references classic racing Jaguar cars with a shrink-wrapped dashboard to provide the driver with the best view forward. No word yet on a release, but there are still talks that the car may hit the road sometime in the next few years.
