At the 2010 Paris Motor Show, Jaguar showed the C-X75 Concept that you see here, as a way to celebrate the company’s 75th birthday. Now, with the help of 100 development engineers from JLR, the Williams F1 team and Cosworth, the car is actually getting near production, according to Inside Line.
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.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
