Jaguar C-X75 Prototype
Originally debuted at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, Jaguar presents a collection of images highlighting its latest supercar creation, the C-X75. Named in honor of Jaguar’s 75th anniversary, the “C” stands for concept and the “X” for experimental. The hybrid electric two-seater reportedly features a powertrain that contains a 500 bhp (372 kW) twin-charged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine as well as two electric motors for a combined maximum output of roughly 850 bhp (633 kW). In time trials the C-X75 prototype accelerated from 0-60 mph in less than three seconds, 0-100 mph in less than six seconds, and reached a top speed of roughly 220 mph. Unfortunately, the production of this concept was cancelled in December due to the ongoing global economic crisis and a price tag that topped out at well over 1 million dollars. The longstanding car maker hasn’t totally ditched the C-X75 design sheets however, as it plans to take what they’ve learned during the development of this supercar and apply it to future Jaguars.
