Jaguar C-X75 - Five Prototypes Being Built
The carmaker wants to bring the car into production, but in order to do that, the company must first make sure that the project is feasible in the real world. Engineering director Bob Joyce explains that the production version is “absolutely the same shape and form, but with more edge and refinement."
The C-X75 concept had an unconventional powertain with turbine engine, but the production version will use a 1.6-liter engine with both turbocharging and supercharging, which will work together with two electric motors, an automated manual gearbox, as well as a Kinetic Energy Recovery Ssystem (KERS).
The British supercar is expected to cover the 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint in under 3 seconds, offer an electric-only range of 37 miles (60 km) and emit under 100 grams of CO2 per km.The production Jaguar C-X75 should come to the work in 2014, with the pricing expected to range between $1.1 million and $1.4 million (EUR878,560 - EUR1.1 million).
