New Imagery Released For Jaguar C-X75 Prototype
Originally unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, Jaguar has unveiled new imagery of its supercar creation, the C-X75.
Named in honor of the carmaker's 75th anniversary, the "C" stands for concept and the "X" for experimental. It is a hybrid electric two-seater, featuring 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.
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 one million dollars.
Reports say Jaguar plans to implement some of the improvements they've learned the development of the supercar and apply to future models.
