Just ahead of its starring role on their stand at the Paris Motor Show, Jaguar
has revealed a supercar concept designed to celebrate 75 years of the famous marque.
The C-X75 concept car is electrically-powered with two micro gas-turbines spinning at 80,000 rpm to generate the electricity to extend the C-X75’s range to 560 miles. When the C-X75 is in ‘track mode’ these turbines can be set to boost the power of the car.
The concept car is powered by four 195 bhp electric motors at each wheel, combining to produce 780 bhp and a stonking 1600Nm of torque. Jaguar say acceleration from 0-62 mph takes just 3.4 seconds, while 50 to 90 mph takes just 2.3 seconds. The top speed is said to be 205 mph.
Carbon dioxide tailpipe emissions are zero for the first 68 miles then just 28g/km with the range-extending turbines running.
