Jaguar C-X75 concept
Jaguar unveiled the C-X75 Concept car at the 2010 Paris Auto Show to show everyone that they had plenty of potential left to uncover as an automaker. And, although the concept was a huge success and served its purpose, Jaguar still needed to prove that this potential prevailed in more than just a design study.

Now, under Tata’s influential arm, Jaguar is looking into building “a more accessible variation of the Jaguar C-X75 concept” and will do so sometime between 2016 and 2017 with 250 units of the crazy cool production version of the C-X75. The production model will be sport-based and will be built in conjunction with the Williams F1 team.
“We were always determined that the Jaguar C-X75 would be as striking on the road as it was in concept form,” said Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar Cars. “This will be the finest looking and most innovative Jaguar ever produced. Even in the world of supercars, we can still produce the most beautiful.”

The production C-X75 will still carry the four electric motors attached one to each axle, but the oh-so-cool jets mounted on the concept will be taken out and replaced with a supercharged 1.6L gasoline engine. Yes, we know the jets would have been awesome to see in a production model, but the specs for the C-X75 won’t disappoint anyone. Plus, we may still get to see the jets in a later production version since Tata owns a big stake in Bladon Jets. For now, we’ll stick to the phenomenal elements of the future C-X75.
At a press gathering at Jaguar’s test facility in Gaydon, England in July 2012, the company announced that the production version Jaguar C-X75 would be like no other supercar. Its four-cylinder engine will feature a displacement of just 1.6 liter, but the output will go up to an impressive 500 HP at an amazing 10,000 rpm. In order to develop such an amazing output, the engine will be equipped with direct fuel injection, supercharging, and turbocharging.

The engine will be mated to a seven-speed single clutch transmission and will either send its power to the rear wheels, or will generate power for the lithium-ion battery pack. The supercar will offer two driving modes: all-electric and hybrid. In electric mode, it will deliver an autonomy of 37 miles and in hybrid mode, it will go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds and up to a top speed of 200 mph.
