Jaguar to build hybrid supercar

Jaguar has announced plans to launch its high-tech C-X75 concept car, with the production model being able to deliver low CO2 emissions of less than 99g/km whilst achieving a top speed in excess of 200mph.

Billed as an exclusive hybrid supercar, the C-X75 will become the British marque's most advanced model to date, and will stay true to the initial concept that took center stage at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.

The C-X75 will be developed in association with Williams F1 who will provide engineering expertise in areas including aerodynamics, carbon composite manufacture and hybrid technologies.

While the supercar's chassis will be made of carbon-fiber, it’s the powertrain that’s the most innovative aspect of the C-X75 concept and Jaguar has confirmed it plans to further develop the use of the micro-turbine technology that graced the Paris show car. Jaguar's parent company Tata has taken a significant stake in Bladon Jets, suppliers of the micro turbines, and will develop technology as a medium-term aspiration that will play a part in Jaguars of the future. Like the concept, the road-going supercar will use a state-of-the-art, small-capacity, highly-boosted internal combustion engine with one powerful electric motor at each axle. "The engine's compact size allows it to be mounted low in the car for optimum weight distribution and to retain the concept's stunning silhouette. This will make the Jaguar C-X75 a bona fide hybrid supercar capable of silent electric running with an extensive EV range in excess of 50km," said Bob Joyce, Group engineering director, Jaguar Land Rover.

When C-X75's motors and combustion engine combine, it will be one of the fastest production cars in the world, with a sub-three second 0-60mph time and a top speed in excess of 200mph

Only 250 examples of the C-X75' will be built, each costing between £700,000 - £900,000 depending on market and local taxes.
