Jaguar Almost Ready to Build 250 C-X75 Hybrid Supercars
But before you get all excited, let us just tell you that it’s going to be a limited. From what we understand, there will actually be two versions of the car. One will keep the gas-turbine hybrid layout of the concept car, but will be limited to the track since it would be hard for them to make the engine comply with start-up emissions regulations. Production of this experimental version will be very limited.
The normal car will have a twin-turbo, range-extender 1.6-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine develops spectacular specific power output. Cosworth is responsible for this unit, based on a V8 F1 engine and producing 313 horsepower. The electrics are very advanced as well, and we’d mention that the C-X75 has the most motors and battery available. Jaguar will make 250 of these unique superacars, which will retail for around $1.15 million each plus local taxes. Deliveries will start in 2013, as prototypes have already been successfully tested.
