Jaguar has confirmed that it will launch the Jaguar C-X75 concept car has an exclusive hybrid supercar.
The Jaguar C-X75 will become Jaguar's most advanced model to date. It will provide performance which is on par with the fastest production cars on the market, whilst adopting cutting-edge technology offering high levels of economy. Jaguar expects the hybrid supercar to deliver CO2 emissions of less that 99g/km whilst being able to achieve in excess 200mph.
"People expect Jaguar to be innovators - that is when Jaguar is at its best," said Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar Brand Director. "The C-X75 received an incredible reception as a concept car. We've been building on that momentum and there is a clear business case for this exclusive halo model. No other vehicle will better signify Jaguar's renewed confidence and excellence in technological innovation than this.
"We were always determined that the Jaguar C-X75 would be as striking on the road as it was in concept form," said Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar Cars. "This will be the finest looking and most innovative Jaguar ever produced. Even in the world of supercars, we can still produce the most beautiful."
The Jaguar C-X75 will be developed in association with Williams F1 who will provide their engineering expertise in areas such as aerodynamics, carbon composite manufacture and hybrid technologies. This association will be at the leading edge of British automotive engineering and innovation.
The supercar will use a state-of-the-art, small-capacity, highly-boosted internal combustion engine with one powerful electric motor at each axle. The combination of the combustion engine and motors will provide a 0-60mph time of under three seconds.
Only 250 examples of the Jaguar C-X75 will be built, each costing between £700,000 - £900,000 depending on market and local taxes.Published 9 May 2011
